Luce Center Label

Purchased as a pair, these miniatures are housed in identical frames. Although couples often had matching frames made for their miniatures, later owners sometimes changed frames to reflect more up-to-date tastes. We cannot assume that these sitters are related without knowing more about who they might be, based on the identities of previous owners.
