    No se apoyan las 4 patas de la silla. Solo 3 se asientan en el suelo. Por ello es insegura. Mal conservada.
    He tenido otras sillas de mali mejor conservadas y que apoyan bien. El defecto es grave

  • El penacho de plumas de la máscara no vino suficientemente protegido y 6 de ellas llegaron quebradas; el producto no llegó pues "all in perfect condition", lo cual reduce significativamente su valor

    Plutôt négatif... L'objet est vraiment de petite qualité. Bois très léger et aucune patine. Juste un peu de cirage. Les photos ont beaucoup trop embelli l'objet. Bref, je suis déçu. Dommage.

    Thank you for the feedback, the description of the lot was correct and complete. It was dated the end of the 20th century and the weight and dimensions were mentioned. I also did not talk about patina and the defect was described. Did you not read the description?
