In fair conserved condition. One example with a section missing from the top moulding. This same example with missing lambrequin drop beneath top, where this is missing the adjacent ornament is loose and would benefit from profesional attention. The joints on each of the legs are visible. The rosewood grained decoration refreshed but largely original. Both examples with losses to gilding and overall marks and scratches commensurate with age and use.
