Glass plate negative of a full length double portrait of Princess Amélie (1848-94) and Princess Clotilde (1846-1927) of Saxe Coburg and Gotha. The princess are facing each other. Princess Amélie stands holding the hand of her sister, Princess Clotilde, who sits beside her. The sisters wear matching dresses.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. Prints from this negative exist in the Collection, RCINs 2906760 and 2915700.
