There sadly is a small stain on the back of the waistcoat and a very small slight pulling you really have to look to see it, I could not capture on my camera. I think the problem is that the waistcoat is a tight fit so it is quite difficult to reach the turning key for the musical movement.
I have seen a couple of these bears with problems on the back of the waistcoat. Neck ribbon is fraying at the edge (see photo). Other than this, bear is great condition and musical movement plays well. Box has a couple of small tears. Not bad really for a 28 year old bear and box.Belonged to my mum and has been stored in the loft so will need airing. Pet and smoke free home.
