A silhouette of a young girl profile right, she is wearing a dress and a row of coral beads. Cut out on card and highlighted with Chinese White and watercolour. The silhouette is housed in a papier mache frame and there is an indistinct inscription to the reverse "Emily Eliddan taken when she was 2 years old".

Little is known about Colpoys, he cut silhouettes and highlighted with gilding and Chinese White, there is an illustration of a girl similar to this silhouette on page 293 of McKechnie. Two known examples of his work were in the collection of Miss Betty Bird one of which was signed.
