I have mine from Dover....I think it was close to 20 years ago that I bought it. I have had no problems with the stitching. I still get compliments and questions about where to purchase one. Have not seen them anywhere since.
I have one that I bought from Dover in the 90's... I absolutely adore it and always get lots of great compliments. It still looks great and you'd never know its so old! Would love to get another one if anyone finds a place that makes them
