I was excited to get it in the mail today but as I unwrapped it I discovered this:
Yup. A huge chip!! I could tell that it was damaged from the Post Office too as all the little chips were still wrapped in the bubble wrap. Luckily the Etsy seller is going to refund half of the money for me but I'm still out some money and no gift for Oscar. It makes me really sad. Its not the money because it really wasnt expensive. Its the fact that this beautiful, collectible piece that was in great condition is now ruined. No one wants chipped Franciscan!!
Oh well. Lesson learned. Tell the seller to pack it well and write 'fragile' on the side. Also, purchase insurance!!!
