A check at Geni.com narrowed down the identity of the Countess Kleinmichel to Ekaterina Petrovna, née Meshchersky, who lived from an unknown date to 1924. I cannot find information about Countess Gortschasov.
From eBay; spots removed with Photoshop and sepia tone removed.
Both Ladies are stylishly dressed wearing substantial bustles on deep chairs that accommodate all of that hardware.
