Carte de visite of 2 young girls, probably sisters. The older girl is wearing a Zouave style jacket with unusual scalloped edge and 3/4 length sleeves allowing her undersleeves to show. She has a belt and hoop skirt embellished with embriodery and ballet type slippers. The younger girl is wearing a hoop dress with puff short sleeves that only very young girls would wear. They both have necklaces and the younger has a bracelet. Their skirts are well above the ankles for girls not yet adults. They are standing in front of an elaborate painted backdrop.
