Dean, I agree they certainly appear to be from the same hand. The treatment of the eyes and the dominant (and a bit awkward) contour that flattens the form is pretty distinctive. Is it likely that the same engraver would execute the scroll, or do you suppose that was done by an apprentice/lesser status engraver?
