What is the rule regarding the seller's reclaimation from an insolvent buyer of goods?

Right of an unpaid seller to get its goods back. Key facts are that (i) the buyer must have been insolvent at the time that it received the goods, and (ii) the seller demands return of goods within 10 days of receipt (this “10-day rule” becomes a “reasonable time rule” if, before delivery, there had been an express representation of solvency by the buyer), and (iii) the buyer still has the goods at the time of demand.
