    Die hübsche junge Dame kam gut verpackt bei mir an. Bild und Rahmen gefallen mir sehr , nur verstehe ich nicht, warum kam es auseinandergenommen an??? Gibt es noch eine Bauanleitung dazu(Foto)???

    Hello. I separated the frame from the frames for safety during transport. The frame is fragile and very beautiful ... I did not want you to get it in pieces. Anyway, the wood panel with painting was caught with some small nails. If you look at the pictures in the auction you will see that they have been separated. It's easy to assemble them together. Best regards Luc
  • Wonderful item . Best regards
