The High Chair

Early 19th Century


This cute portrait shows a baby seated on a wooden slatted chair and wearing a traditional muslin gown with a blue-green bodice, a close lace cap tied under the chin and a coral beaded necklace to ward off any evil spirits.

The portrait is set in an attractive gilt metal locket frame that is glazed on the back to show a sweet little lock of hair in two colours tied with gold wire and lain on cream silk.
