Condition Report
Some wear/losses to the tips of the elephant's tusks. One vase has some heavy rubbing to the gilding around the foot rim. Both sets of elephants on each vase have some slight cracks to the ears, but these appear to be manufacturing flaws. The painted decoration is in good condition with little to no wear and there are no further cracks, chips, damages or any restorations.
