I am so sad that my little guy is a bit big for this darling pillow! I’m hoping one of you will be able to use it! The precious little duck in his sailor suit and that perfect shade of blue!! The front is in excellent condition. The backing is a heavy velvet like material that perfectly matches the body of the duck. It does have one small dark spot on the very bottom of the pillow and on the top a few of the stitches have come loose. Despite those shows of age the pillow still has tons of years left in it!
