Condition 

Excellent. 

No notable flaws that I can see, it is in great condition for its age. Fabric is glossy and unfaded. The slight colour variations in the photographs are due to studio lighting.

Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws above and beyond this will be highlighted here.
