    Je suis désolé que vous avez des doutes en fonction de age.
    Toutes les pieces de les vendeurs (aussi mon object ) sont strictement controlées par l'expert de catawiki au moyen de des photos et mes informations de fond.
    En cas de moindre doute ,surtout en function de age , object est refusé
    J'ai trouver deux antiquairs célèbres qui ont exactement les memes chandeliers (aussi importante ) avec les memes traces anciens, dans leur collection. J'ai dit a l'expert que je voudrais transmettre ces photos et informations.
    Aussi mes photos accompagnent la description etait très realistes et toute l'information que j'ai donner a l'expert est véridique. Je peut prouver que.

    Cordialement ,
