Two named CDVs

Here are two CDVs from my collection where I am lucky enough to have the subjects names.  First is a photograph of Dora Jowitt with her mother with a date that I believe to be 1868.  The photographer is T . Coleman of Brunswick Place London which fits in with the dating of mid-late 1860s.

The second CDV is of Miss Diana Coke.  Normally I wouldn't buy a CDV in such poor and faded condition but she is such a cutie I couldn't resist her.  There is no photographer markings to help date her but judging from what we can see of her dress and hair I'd say mid 1860s. I love the large tasselled bows on her sleeves and her cute little basket :)
