    Bonjour
    Malheureusement je n'ai pas signalé la restauration la prochaine fois ça servira de leçon même si je trouve que votre avis est dure.J'ai bien reçu votre mail je ne pouvais pas y repondre car j'étais en voyage en Afrique. Je n'aurais pas pu faire de ristourne car l'enchère est de 47 € je suis perdant et de plus j'ai un avis negatif. L'objet je l'ai eu dans cette état ce n'est pas moi qui a fait la restauration. Et heureux de savoir que vous l'avez trouvé belle. Les 2 avis negatif que jai recu dans mes évaluations cest des enchères de 40€ et cest bien dommage car vous faites de bonne affaires et vous laisser des avis negatif . Bonne continuation

  • We love the mask and were so pleased by its quick arrival. Still, surprised that the info that the beak (?) which had broken off and replaced, was not mentioned in the description. A major omission,
