I would say that these are definitely of the Mid Victorian era but probably had new mats then re-framed in early 1900's by look of it. Certainly the frames appear to be old Victorian era but the backing mats look later to me....I could well be wrong...nice pair anyway. I think they are of American origin but could be originally English before that. Each one measures 8 1/2" x 6 1/2"
