Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The five portraits comprise a young Lady painted in silhouette and profile with flowers in her hair and beads around her neck.
A young Gentleman in a red military tunic .
A middle aged Gent with a medal or decoration on the right side of his jacket.
And elderly Gent and another young man complete the set.
The miniatures have a domed glass cover and a gilded frame and are all mounted in black lacquered papier-mâché board and held in a gilt frame.
The back of the frame has two printed labels both stating the miniatures are by 'Gilchrist miniature and profile painter to their Royal Highnesses the Duke & Duchess of York'.
We can not find much information on Gilchrist apart from he was Scottish and also can not confirm he was painter to their Royal Highnesses.
The miniatures are in original condition and have not been cleaned.
