Additional Notes & Condition Report
Each urn and cover appears to be in generally good, undamaged condition; no apparent rim chips, hairline cracks, etc.,; all of the mounts appear to be intact; typical wear/dulling to the gilding on the metal mounts; one of the mounts on one of the urns has a small area with a splash of overpaint splatter and there is small bit of paint splatter on the same urn in an adjacent area on the porcelain body, not of great consequence; the gilding appears to be generally intact and in good condition; no apparent damage to either cover, including the rims; one of the urns is artist signed; one of the urns is presently just a bit wobbly; this matter can probably be remedied by simply tightening the screws that secure the various parts of the porcelain body together; each urn is marked on the underside with an overglaze crossed arrow mark (not the usual Sèvres mark)
