Condition is very good with no damage or restoration. There are a couple of minor firing faults to the male right-facing dog, a short firing crack between his front legs and a fine line along the join part along his back towards the bottom half. The copper has oxidised in some places causing a green effect amongst the copper, more noticeable on the female left-facing dog. Minimal surface wear, the enamel to the faces is very good on both.
