The pastels have not been viewed out of their frames. Both pastel on paper. Both are in fairly good condition overall. There are some dark brown stains at the upper margin of the sheet with the female looking upwards. There appears to be a water stain in the lower left corner of the pastel of the female head in profile. As they have not been viewed out of their frames not all edages are visible for condition inspection.
Both in carved and gilded frames. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
