    • Hi,

      Thanks for the compliments. I tried to look at the bottle, but since the item was already ended on ebay, I could not properly see it anymore. Only a little misformed image came up. It looked a bit like the one on the last row of three star bottles above 5cl (ca. 8cl). If you could send me the picture by e-mail, I would be thankful.
      I tried to email you directly, but the e-mail address seems to be wrong (delivery returned).

      Regards,
      Ton
