From the craftsman :I saw the warm text of the president from heaven and
I was sobbing, weeping. At the time of production,
it was a lively work, but now I read that it it has Hagire
on the Hamachi area. I am surprised at the length of the time
of 450 years. However, seeing from the time
when the state was also produced, the crest remains the same
We hope that those who purchased it will be carefully preserved.
