    Seriöser Verkäufer Ware war gut verpackt
    Allerdings war die Maske etwas zu teuer dafür dass es eigentlich keine wirkliche Maske ist sondern nur Ein Abbild

    Thank you for your feedback. Nice to hear that the mask has been received in good condition. Regarding the mask, it is indeed not a face mask but a wall mask. These were hung on the wall in the men's houses. That's how I described the mask. I hope that this provides some clarification. Thanks.

    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.

    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.
