The condition of lots can vary widely and the nature of the lots sold means that they are unlikely to be in a perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.
Overall in good condition. As mentioned the mirror plates later. The mirror plates with an area of loss to the upper plate and with some fogging and foxing throughout. The reverse with some pinholes around the mirror plate. The giltwood with some scattered chips, losses to carving and gilt surfaces revealing gesso, bole and bare wood in areas as to be expected with age. Some areas off and re-attached including the upper most section of cresting, the two scrolls to either side of the bust, the left scroll at the top, the right ho-ho birds legs, the flower decoration below the right ho-ho bird, the shell to the bottom left, the flower decoration below the ho-ho bird to the left, and the left ho-ho bird's neck all with associated restoration and some visible glue. The lattice decoration to the lower left and right sections likely later or refreshed.
