This locket contains two portrait miniatures, one of Mrs. Walter Clarke and the other of her infant son, Marvia H. Clarke, who holds a rattle. Mrs. Clarke appears bust-length with brown hair, wearing a wine red dress. The child is seated wearing a white dress, holding a rattle and surrounded by clouds. The clouds might indicate that this is a posthumous portrait. From the sitter's center-parted hair style and off the shoulder dress the miniature appears to date from ca. 1840.
