The fine stippled work evident in the sitter' face is one which is associated with the hand of Thomas Frye. Frye the Anglo-Irish painter (c. 1710 – 3 April 1762) best known for his portraits in oil and pastel, including some miniaturesand his early mezzotint engravings, was also the patentee of the Bow porcelain factory, London, and claimed in his epitaph to be "the inventor and first manufacturer of porcelain in England." (published in Supplement to the Gentleman's Magazine for the Year 1764, p 638.)
