How smooth is the transaction, is the main issue.I am buying more than average person on antique auctions. When some one ask me a question: how satisfied you are with whole process? I say very good, because I do not remember details of the transaction. This is what I can say about dealing with Locati auction house. Everything went so smoothly I do not remember details. On the other hand I have bought glass in Europe last December. It did not come and we have May. This one is hard to do not remember.
