A fine and important portrait miniature of Lady Orford, wife of Robert Walpole. She is wearing a low cut white dress with a bright blue shawl around her shoulders. She has blue eyes and her fair hair is worn tied back and falling in curls to her shoulder.

Enamel in an oval gold frame with cream silk to the reverse, together with a red Morocco leather travelling case.
Excellent
The miniature was probably given to F T MaCalmont some time in the late 18th century. A note written by MaCalmont accompanies the miniature.
“This picture of Lady Orford was given me by La Duchesse di Surmenter (?) Lady Orford lived in the Villa Medea (?) and redecorated it in 1778. F. T. MaCalmont.”

This suggests that Lady Orford was the wife of the 2nd Earl of Orford nee Margaret Rolle, marrying Walpole in 1724 aged 15. She died in Pisa in 1781.
