Mabel and Edith Bratt's Cabinet Card: a connection with Tolkien?

I found this auction on Ebay:

"Cabinet Card Females under tree ID'd Mabel & Edith Bratt J.R.R. TOLKIEN."

The seller writes;

"All my research points Edith Bratt to be J.R.R Tolkiens's wife. I found other Edith Bratt's but they were either born later, earlier, or had Bratt name by marriage. This photo fits the time period of when J.R.R's wife would be young. I'm not sure if Mabel in the photo is J.R.R's mother or if she too is a Bratt or another family member. Please do your research prior to purchase. This one I'm not 100% sure bout."

In this picture you don't see either Mabel Suffield or Edith Bratt (I am sure you agree on that). I think it is not Tolkien-related as I've found a Mabel A Bratt (Mass. etc.) or Mary Edith Bratt (Gregory) (Stour etc.)... We simply cannot rule out the option that there were other people named Mabel, or Edith, and I have not found any other related Mabel and Edith Bratt amongst Tolkien's relatives, friends and acquaintances matching the picture. Not 100% sure, perhaps, but I would at least say I'm 99.99% positive those people have nothing to do with Tolkien. And you? What are your thoughts about this?

I've also different iitalian nformation booklets with Tolkien's name (1930-1933).

I wrote a paper (in Italian!) published in Academia.edu on the story between the Linguaphone, Tolkien and Italy:

And, in my website, I presented the infomrations that I known
