These two elegant and rare tables are in very good overall condition. Each foot presents with light instances of wear partially revealing the original color of the metal. The marble presents with very minor dents along the edges. On one table, the head of the bird is very slightly moving but not affecting its stability. There is some dirt along the head edges, but not visually distracting and consistent with age. On one table, there are two small restorations on corner of both wings and one with a crack that has been professionally stabilized. On the other table, the head of the bird presents with very minor losses of marble. The various irregularities such as the darker stains or lines are natural and inherent to the material.
