I wonder if you can date it via the locket itself?

Is there a makers hallmark you could research?

Beautiful restoration work Tommy.

Regards,
Jen.
Thank-you so much Jen. These Victorian photos are my fav. This one looks like a French Victorian of the many I've seen.

The man appears to be a lot younger than 45.

Maybe it's a 3rd couple we don't know about and neither of the two possibles.

Some good thoughts there, and I am always amazed at the skill shown by our resident artists here.  I am waiting for an answer about any hallmark on the locket, but we don't know how busy they are across the pond.  There was a big spread of relatives at that period, so the list of candidates might have to be extended...

It is Christmas Regorian, time to lighten up!    No need for such a dogmatic comment.

Lucky to have images of even one couple at that time period I'd have thought!!    ;)  Lovely to have!

Well before the time of photography, and how many people would have had their portraits painted?  That would require money wouldn't it?

Google Marie Antoinette image 1775 to see comparison of lady's hairstyle.

Wiggy

It does look to be from the same era doesn't it Wiggy. How lovely to have such a beautiful pair of miniatures and so well executed :o What a shame that they don't appear to be signed.
