So, now I am wondering if the one's I already own are Cortendorf at all or 'knock-offs'?
First, the sad horror, the figurine arrived to me the other day from Germany in a large box from USPS by way of DHL.
Maybe the one's I got from Japan are a variation? Interesting.
I can't stress enough, from experience, when buying or selling ceramics or items that are fragile, one must be very vigilant in making sure the item is secured properly with bubble wrap, tape and even tissue paper or newspaper. Trust me it saves you the trouble or heartache of seeing a perfect item become damage by a shipper-_-;
