His “Pete The Pup” chest decal is 100% intact. The underside pegs in both feet are embossed with the Cameo trademark name. Pete has had no repairs, replacements, or touch-up’s. Measures 9″ high and from arm to arm measures 8″ across.  This piece is one that will be certain to be a highlight in any wood segmented toy collection.
