Description: 
Double portrait of two children, possibly siblings. The girl is seated on the left, with a light colored dress and dark shawl. Her hands are on her lap, and her hair is pulled away from her face. The boy is standing, with his right hand on her left shoulder. He has dark pants and jacket, with a white shirt and dark bowtie. His hair is combed up into a swirl. The gold plate surround celebrates the Union, with American flags, crests, and cannons surrounded by floral imagery. The red velvet facing the image has been stamped and died black in some parts. The case, with a single clasp, has the same motif stamped on both the front and back.
