Male portrait dated "1869," lower right (obscured by mat). Both unsigned. Both housed in matching giltwood frames with oval openings and rectangular surrounds with carved scrolling running patterns. One frame retains a label for J.P. Schneider Jr., Frankfurt. Sights: 23" H x 17 3/4" W. Framed: 30 1/2" H x 25 1/4" W. European, third quarter of the 19th century. Provenance: private Southern collection. Condition: Overall very good condition. Both canvases appear to have been cut down in size.
