Stunned buyer won't be sitting on this chair

A woman bought a stylish wooden chair from a major online-shopping platform, but when it was delivered she was a tiny bit disappointed.

The buyer, named Siravariety on the Twitter account, posted a video clip on Sunday, saying she had ordered a Chinese wooden chair from a seller through Lazada, and paid for it on April 26.

When it arrived it looked just like the chair posted on the seller's website - but it was a miniature.

"This is the chair," she said, and showed a picture of it compared against her forefinger - and the chair is only slightly larger. "It's so big," she joked .

Many comments responding to her post blamed Lazada for not showing full details, including the size, of the chair.

A search for the chair on the online shopping platform shows it was offered with a 41% discount, from 949 baht to 558 baht. As it does not give the measurements, the picture looks like a normal-sized chair that the buyer can expect to sit on when it arrives from China.

The only clue is in the product information description: "Inside the product box  1* Collectibles" -  a term used for an object regarded as being of value or interest to a collector, but not necessarily valuable or antique. Miniatures are often highly sought collectibles.
