Setting Her Cap . . .
During the Georgian era ladies traditionally wore indoor caps so when a favoured gentleman was expected to call out would come the most becoming cap. And this young lady has certainly put on her most eye-catching cap to sit for her portrait. Trimmed with lace and in the shape of a turban, the cap is embroidered with sprigs of green foliage. Her white muslin dress has a draped bodice and a lace-trimmed neckline.
The portrait is set behind convex glass in a period turned wood frame.
