**Both are in very good "as found" condition. The surfaces appear to be undisturbed. There are some scattered chips and flakes to some leaf tips and edges. There is a small section of a branch missing on the right side of one mirror. The mirror plates with imperfections and silvering loss, giving them a very pleasing overall patina. One has a cracked mirror at the top left.
