Thecondition isused and near Mint for its age.
The miniature teddy bear has No Dents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holesand No Repairs that I can find, the teddy bear sits upright, the decoration and definition is very crisp, the silver hallmark is slightly rubbed or worn due to its location but it is still legible although as this is a used miniature teddy bear it does have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patina of age that is to be expectedanda gentle clean would not go amiss. Personally I think that this miniature teddy bear would make a superb addition to any dolls house or cabinet collection and that it looks fantastic considering its age.
This Delightful English Hallmarked Sterling Silver Dolls House or Miniature Teddy Bear from London dated 1991 is one of several pieces of antique and collectable silver that I have also listed.
