  • Item as described. Quick shipping. I’m not an expert and have no idea if it’s an original 5th century item, but my belief that it is makes me quite pleased with the purchase. A+

    我拍卖的碗今天收到,但那碗口有一条裂纹(1 hairlines)。此前你承认“抱歉,但是我们没有注意到碗里有裂缝,否则我们会在描述中说明的。”;后来又不承认说“我们没有看到碗上有裂缝 ”。我不是发了有裂缝的照片足以证明了吗?”卖家信用何在?
