A pair of portraits of husband and wife in profile


Artist: Edward Vaughan

4 cm (1 1/2")
She in profile to the left, wears a white dress trimmed with blue ribbon at her corsage, matching ribbon and white plume entwined in her powdered grey wig; he in profile to the right wars a black suit, powdered hair en queue
Set either side of a fine gold frame both sides embellished with white, and blue enamel decorated with gold motif (some minor chips to the enamelling)

Although this pair does not appear to be signed the use of grey tones in the background and profile stance are features found in other signed examples by Vaughan. Being set either side of locket suggests that perhaps the miniatures were commissioned to celebrate the union of the couple through marriage.
