The slightly stiff manner and "woolly" technique evident in this portrait is comparable with other known enamelled Royal portraits which have been identified as being the work of Michael Rosse, the rich jeweller and husband of Susan Penelope Rosse (1652-1700), a miniaturist and daughter of Richard Gibson, who painted members of the Court of Charles II. These enamels by Rosse are very rare.

This enamel would appear to be based on an image painted by Sir Godfrey Kneller.
