  • YOU DECEIVE BUYERS!!! E160 ‘PAINTING’ in poor condition (incl. 4 holes), ‘frame’ damaged (all corners, stain) / non-fitting. NOT result of transport. Advertised as ‘good overall condition’. RUBBISH!

    Dear Renee
    Were very sorry you didnt like your artwork. We’ve already done everything that was in our hand in order to cancel the purchase. Please note that at El Testamento del Barón, quality and honesty are without question, and that when our customers aren’t satisfied with their acquisitions, we give them every possible mean in order to return the goods. Our attitude towards this problem has been gentle and sensible, and we think your commentary is completely inadequate.

    Il quadro è arrivato in pochissimi giorni e molto ben imballato . Qualche piccola scheggiatura sulla cornice nero laccata . Penso di poter rimediare facendo dei piccoli ritocchi da solo . Ciao Madrid

    Het gekochte schilderij is niet netjes verzonden. Het doek kwam door de doos naar buiten. Gelukkig niet beschadigd, maar niet de zorgvuldige behandeling die ik van andere kopers gewend ben.

    El lienzo se encuentra en pésimo estado de conservación y las sujeciones al bastidor desgajadas en un 90%. El embalaje insuficiente y falta de protección lo que ha provocado pequeño corte lienzo.
