There are some spots of loss and discoloration to the bodies, and some spots of gilt loss to the bases. One of the vases sustains a crack to the interior that goes up both sides, but does not show through to the exterior. The same vase also sustains repairs to a broken wing tip to one of the handles. The vases would benefit from a cleaning. The bases appear to be original, but because they screw on separately, and because one vase appears to sustain damage from being over tightened, it is possible the bases have been replaced. One of the upper portions of one of the bases appears to have been repainted.
