    Slechte beschrijving. Op diverse plekken onvoldoende of geen restauratie. De achterpoten zijn ooit eens afgebroken en opnieuw gelijmd, waarvan één slecht. Te weinig of geen foto's van de mankementen.

    Geachte meneer, deze bank is meer dan 200 jaar oud en origineel prachtig Empire en is in een uitstekende staat, gerestaureerd en verstevigd. Ik verwijs u vriendelijk door naar de Ikea als u een nieuwe bank wenst. U had dit kunnen noemen toen u de bank persoonlijk heeft afgehaald.Mvg Judith van Lunsen
