Sepia-tone carte-de-visite photograph of a man and woman identified as Martin Kent and Eliza Sprague. The image shows a woman and a man seated side by side on an ornately carved seat. Both the man and the woman look straight at the camera. The woman is wearing a plaid dress with a white collar and the man a suit with tie.On reverse is an engraving of a woman holding a sword framed between two leafy branches. Underneath in typeset it reads "H.B. King, / No. 9 Union Block, / TAUNTON, MASS. / Duplicates of this furnished at any time." At top center in pencil it reads "Eliza Tilden Sprague / b. 1 /17 /1837 / m. Martin Kent / Eliza Tilden Sprague." It appears that the CDV was cut down in order to fit into a previous frame.
