This set was used. The cellophane is punched out of the "door" and through the "window panes". There are some tears on the lid from the door and window. She does not have any chips or cracks. She has an excess piece of bisque on the top of her head that was done during manufacture. There is a dark spot of paint on the back of her head that is also probably from manufacture.
