THE SELLER WILL COVER SHIPPING WITH REGULAR MAIL FOR THIS ITEM!
We are dealing with set into original, gilded metal locket, very good quality miniature portraits of two brothers from well-known Russian aristocratic family: Prince Grigori Ivanovich Gagarin (1782-1837; from 1802 to 1805 secretary of Russian embassy in Vienna; CLICK HERE and see our comparison image nr.5) and his elder brother, Prince Sergei Ivanovich Gagarin (1777-1862; from 1802 to 1805 secretary of Russian embassy in Naples; for comparison see our image nr.6 and our web # 42646 ); their dress and hairstyle speak for first years of 19th century.
As we believe both portraits were made simultaneously in Vienna - either in 1802 (the elder brother made stopover in that city on the way to Naples (read description to web # 42646 )) or in 1805, as he was on the way back to St.Petersburg (we have a feeling, brothers posed for these poprtraits rather in 1805 (due to sitters' visual age, their dress and hairstyle - see comparison image nr.7).
