Both plates housed in matching moulded leather cases, the velvet lining on the lid interior stamped with Anson's name and address, gilt brass mats around the images. Case lids detached, the images themselves bright; Together with a half plate [Portrait, Husband and Wife]. [Rufus P.] Anson: 589 Broadway, New York, (after 1853 from address). The mat with Anson's name and address, repeated on the velvet lining of the case interior. Moulded leather case, the plate with delicate hand heightening of the faces.
