He has apricot mohair, now mostly faded, but the original apricot colouring can still be seen around his joints. He is a teddy bear who has been loved and played with and has a few mummy/nanny repairs. He has repair around his front left ankle and his right wrist, which are now stable.His paw pads are now replaced, and his felt foot pads are worn and show the original horsehair covering over card lining. Skipper is wood wool and kapok filled and has a squeaker in his tum no longer working. He has his original nose stitching with felt underlining and original claw stitching, but there are no claws remaining on his left foot, his mouth is replaced.
He still has plenty of his once apricot mohair remaining, the main areas of loss being to top of his head/forehead, right wrist and back. He has a little wear around his nose area, which has darkened over his lifetime and the right side of his back is slightly darker to the backing. Skipper will come to his new home wearing his sailor coat and sailor hat.Please see all photos for his condition.
