Condition report

One tiger: face, top of head, ears and neck covered in spray and so is its hips, tail and back of hind legs, and some black stripes repainted on the hind quarters. The other tiger: the figure's robe, tiger's hips, belly, hind legs and tail, all covered in spray; its upper lip and left hear restored. One luohan: back of head, face, shoulders, front torso, left arm and the best all covered in spray. The other luohan: face, back of head, front torso, both arms, shoulders and belt all covered in spray. The restoration is well done and presents well.

The torsos are slightly ill fitting, and the aperture on the tiger slightly modified. One figure with a restored chip to the lower tunic, and both possibly with pegs polished off the socles which fit inside the tiger.
