Condition is very good overall: Small amounts of professional restoration to the antlers, the stag's left ear and the doe's right one and her back left foot, all done very well. A few very minor losses to the bocage of the stag. A slightly larger section missing from the doe above her head, some usual chips to the tips of the leaves on the other side and a couple of the leaves around the back are discoloured.
