Report by RB
The lid to the music box, which has a bear, is detached. The music box is currently operational. All the bears have eyes. General wear and dirt. On the tripod type base the three feet do not fit perfectly, and might have been off at one point. Overall it could do with a bit of polish and elbow grease.
