Wearing a dark coat, white waistcoat and frilled cravat
set in the original gold frame with blue and white enamel border within seed pearls, the reverse with raised oval aperture to reveal plaited hair studded with stars within a blue glass mount set with exquisite floral pearl pattern within outer silver mount studded with pellets

This miniature is a perfect example of the skill and craftsmanship that sometimes went into the presentation of the frame - an indication perhaps that the sitter was one of considerable wealth.
