wearing ceremonial dress a fur edged red cloak trimmed with gold over black robe and tied cravat
Painted in enamel set in rectangular black papier-mâché frame the gilt mount surmounted with three flowers on a coronet

Although the identity of the sitter remains anonymous the coronet above the portrait indicates that the sitter is a Marquess. A British marquess is entitled to a coronet bearing four strawberry leaves (three visible) and four silver balls (or pearls) around the rim (two visible). The actual coronet is worn mostly on certain ceremonial occasions, but a marquess can bear his coronet of rank on his coat of arms above the shield.
