Also included is the plastic lion’s den, correct with two male lions, one female lion. All of the lions are fixed in place with the little sticky pads applied to the polystyrene plinth and den. Three portions of meat and a red barrel are also still present*. So the full complement of accessories.
The polystyrene plinth is in clean, bright and fresh condition. Very small piece missing.
The card box is complete and strongly-coloured with original cellophane in place (tiny nick). Corner ruffle to the card and a couple of small seam tears. Tiny stain. Period pencilled price on an end flap.
