    Negativt: merket som vanlige varer, ikke antikviteter. Jeg har handlet flere ganger før på Catawiki, uten å måtte betale VAT. Ca 50 EUR, som var en negativ overraskelse. Burde ikke skje.

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Thank you for your feedback. I want to explain to you that I am only allowed to classify a shipment as antique if it is over 100 years old. Otherwise I commit a customs fraud when sending outside the EU. Your purchase is dated 2nd half of the 20th century and could therefore not be described as antiques. I'm sorry if this was unclear to you.
