Well carved with very good detail.
Beautiful piece. Good communication and follow through.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hi there,
The catawiki chat system was closed. That is why we cant talk there anymore. This was not in my hands, Catawiki's did this automatically. That is why I told Catawiki to give you my private phone number and e-mail. I had asked for your information, but they could not give that to me because of privacy laws. I see that you gave me a negative feedback again. However, I have done all in my power to contact you. Catawiki has provided you with my e-mail address and phone number. Now it is up to you to reach out to me so that I can solve this issue with you. Kind regards, Jake
