Title: Unidentified couple, man seated holding newspaper, woman standing leaning on his shoulder.

Description: Portrait of an unidentified couple. The man is seated and holding a newspaper while the woman is standing and leaning on his shoulder. The man wears a necklace around his neck with a pendant that could be a daguerreotype. He also has a chain on his vest which is colored with blue pigment and leans on a cloth-covered table upon which sits a book. His tie is also colored with blue pigment and parts of his vest chain are colored with gold pigment. The woman wears gloves, a ring, a cameo brooch, and a long necklace attached to something that she holds in her hand. The recessed part of the cameo is colored with blue pigment and her earrings and necklace are colored with gold pigment. Parts of her ring and necklace are also scored by Easterly to emulate their reflective elements.
