Thank you. Great auction. Fast and well protected shipment.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.....I'm saying about the cut margins all over the engraving...this wasn't mentioned in the description. The theme is ok...but without margins and sticked on paper the engraving considered as in bad condition
