Oil on canvas in period carved and giltwood frame. Top left, a small inscription giving the name of the sitter and other information.

A charming portrait of the young Mary Finch (1690-1764). To her right are flowers symbolising her youth and the transience of life. She gathers more flowers within the lap of her dress, a token of future fertility.
Mary was the daughter of William Finch of Tenterden, Kent. She married William Dobell in 1722 and had two daughters; Barbara Dobell, born 1726, and Mary Dobell, born 1728. Mary died at Folkington, Sussex aged 74.
The Finches were a gentry family with aristocratic connections, related to the Finch Earls of Nottingham, Winchelsea and Aylesford.
By family descent.
Verso, on the frame and canvas two wax seals bearing the coat of arms of the Finches, and a printed coat of arms of Richard Almack. Also a handwritten copperplate inscription giving the name of the sitter and other information.
A great deal of old handwritten information about the Finch family tree accompanies the portrait.
