I agree with what you are seeing. To me it looks like a "Young head" Queen Victoria, and a man playing a piano.

Found the following on https://www.rct.uk/collection/2426/grand-piano which ties in with that theory.

For Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the piano was the centre of music-making at home and they installed pianos in the private apartments of all their residences. Together they played arrangements of overtures and symphonies, and accompanied each other in song. This elaborately decorated instrument by Erard was intended as a showpiece for the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace. The gilded case is decorated in the French early eighteenth-century style with cherubs and singeries – comical scenes involving monkeys playing musical instruments and making mischief. Queen Victoria had owned a piano decorated in a similar manner almost twenty years earlier. In her diary of 5 March 1839, she wrote, 'Lord Melbourne admired the new painted piano I have in the drawing-room, and said, 'I like those monkeys on it.'

But so far can not identify exactly what your find is.

Edit: Typed before seeing the "Keep your temper" gaming token post. Could the man be a card player?.

Well at least you were right about it being a Viccy :) Looks like Albert at the table too.
