What's for sale?

This is a charming pair of early photographic portraits, signed by the photographer and mounted in good quality carved wooden frames.

We think the subjects are a French husband and wife, the husband being in dress uniform, probably police or fire brigade. The period is early 20th century.

These are good quality portraits which would probably have been an important and costly purchase for the couple.  We really like them, the photographs and the frames, and apart from cleaning them up and adding the picture cord, we've left them as we found them.
