Condition is very good: the boy has some very fine restoration to the lower part of his right arm and the girl has had a repair also to her left arm and professionally touched in. There has been a small chip to the blue apron which has been touched in to match. No other restoration or damage to the figures, bases and candle sconces. Minor chips and losses to the bocage and petals. Light surface wear; the enamels are nice and bright, there has been some rubbing to the gilding in places and there are some very fine craze lines in places.
