The arms and legs all move as if they are jointed. Face has been hand embroidered. Has almost a folk "Americana" look and appeal to it. Only issue is small hole in the tail. Measures a little taller than 12 inches in height.

What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a hand sewn toy monkey with corduroy and fiber filling. There is damage in places. As you mentioned in the description, it is somewhere around a century old. There is a market for antique dolls and toys, and collectors may look within specific categories, like the type of animal or material or era. The Fair Market Value of this item is between $40 and $80, in comparison with similar items I found. It does have an interesting style and I understand what you mean about the 'Americana' folk art look. Perhaps the right buyer would be interested in paying a higher price.
