Markings: Some of the Figurines have a sticker with China on them.
Condition: Pre-owned; All seem to be in good condition except one dark man kneeling down. He has a hair-line crack in the crease of his leg. (See picture). The other figures have no crack, chips, or nicks. Box is in fair condition and has been taped. The original 12 pieces come in Styrofoam packaging. The cradle will be wrapped separately.
