One of the smaller pair of vases shows signs of professional restoration to small sections of the upper and lower rim - or at the very least, the gilt in those areas has been touched up. Otherwise, the vases appear in original order with only very minimal rubbing to the gilt and no further signs of any restorations or damages. Please see additional images.
