The caption that came with this image is, "Gruppenbild mit ihrer Schwester Amalie (: Halbfigur, Linksprofil, der Schwester durch ein Fenster die Hand reichend).” Wikipedia has an out take from this photo showing Princess Amelie, but dates it to the 1880s.

They were daughters of Princess Clémentine d’Orléans. Amelie’s Subalbum is here; Princess Clothilde’s is here.

The sisters wear crinoline dresses and Amelie’s has a pouff in back. The coiffures are complex in keeping with bustle period styles.
