    Response by seller
    Bonjour Monsieur,
    Désolé. je pensais sincèrement avoir bien décrit les défauts:

    One top chimney is broken = Une cheminée brisée en son sommet
    Little loss in the wood, below the barrels= Petits manques dans le bois du fût, sous le canon.
    J'ai adjoint de nombreuses photos...
    Y-avait-il d'autres dégâts qui m'auraient échappé ?
    Cordialement
    Alain Kaller
