Both panels are cradled, flat and stable. Both paint surfaces are relatively clean, with slightly discoloured varnishes. There are some retouched losses to the gilding in the haloes in both panels. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals 1 cm.-wide bands of retouching along all four margins in both. There are also small scattered retouchings in the backgrounds and chequered floors of both, and some small fine lines of more recent retouching scattered in the hair and haloes of both saints. Older retouchings comprised of small fine lines, are revealed scattered through the figures themselves. None of these distract from the legibility of both images, which present well in their current state and are in overall good condition.
