He wears lime green coat and waistcoat, white lace collar: she wears a blue shawl over a pale pink dress and matching bonnet
both set in the original gold bracelet claps frames

It has not been possible to identify the artist's hand with any certainty but this pair is non the less a charming pair of brother and sister, designed to have been worn on a bracelet - presumably by the sitter's mother.
