Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The silhouette is partly cut from paper and has pencil details on the card, signed on the reverse and held in a papier mache frame with brass acorn and mount. The reverse bears 2 Collection labels, Andrew Ransford Collection No.93 and the remnants of Dudley Bendall's Collection label. The reverse also bears Maginn's signature " J L Maginn/Artist"
It seems that Maginn must have copied this silhouette from an earlier 18th century silhouettist as the sitter is wearing a uniform that pre-dates Maginn by about 50 years. The date of the officer's uniform would be consistent with a date of about 1780.
