Additional Notes & Condition Report

Each appears to be in generally good condition except for the following noteworthy condition issues:

Urn A: cover has been repaired to a break at the finial; there is some wear and rubbing to the gilding, consistent with age, use and handling; there are a few small nicks/shallow flaking to the gilt surface along the top rim edges of the ankle area; there is a small shallow flake loss to an area of the flat side edge of the square foot (at the back).

Urn B: cover appears to be in good condition; there is some shallow flake losses to the painted and gilt decoration, notably, on the rear side of the urn in at least three areas, i.e., side of handle and two areas above the landscape reserve, in the area of the cobalt band; there is some wear and rubbing to the gilding, consistent with age, use and handling;

neither urn was blacklighted; neither urn appears to be artist signed; each urn has likely had some minor areas with later overpainting or touch-up
