Wearing dark blue naval uniform with white collar, white waistcoat and tied black stock, a ship in the background
set in the original gold frame, the reverse with oval aperture to reveal plaited hair within gold mount and blue glass border

Although not signed on the front (the miniature has not been removed from the frame) the miniature shows many characteristics of the artist Finucane who spent much of his career in the Channel Islands. The cross hatching in the background in different colours of blue and black are one such feature associated with his hand.
