    I’m a seller of antiques, not a postal company. If things have got damaged during transport, which is really a pity, you'd better send me photographs of how you received the item, not after you re-stuck it, otherwise I really can't get an idea of what happened.

    According to my long time and very reliable supplier, this is incorrect: it is lacquer ware on paulownia wood, not on plastic!
