About This Image

Portrait of an affluent English family; a mother poses with her two sons. They are elegantly dressed and several items in the photograph are highlighted with gold. The standing boy has a gold fob watch chain, the mother holds a rectangular object with gilt decoration and wears a long gilt chain, behind her is a posing table with a deep green cloth and a gold bottle or decanter on it. Perhaps the woman is holding a daguerreotype case housing a portrait of her husband who is missing from this family photo.

Ornate oval mat. The image has a slightly 3D effect.
