Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.

There is a time zone difference and I had shut down for the evening when you continued to respond. My last response before shutting down for the evening was a thank you thinking that you were going to add pictures today.

You can't email to the general site, I will not get them. If you email, you must
email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line and be sure to use the same email that you used when you signed up for your account so they will recognize your account.
These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way.
