Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Boa tarde Exmos Srs.
Até ao momento os lotes adquiridos, corresponderam às expectativas
Tinha receio quanto ao embalamento dos objetos mas, pude constatar que que estes são enviados bem protegidos.
New made fake of Russian icon (99% of picture new painted). Very low resolution on photos (Bidder can't see real condition, quality, age of icon) .Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.I am sorry you think this. I bought the icon from a collection assembled before 1980 and with certificates of origin I was assured. I sold more before from that collection and never had a complaint. I posted very detailed photo's of small areas of the icon. So I don't agree with your vision.
