The Marquis’s Heir

Circa 1820


This charming portrait depicts a young child with short strawberry blonde hair wearing a white dress with a blue sash and a delicately painted lace bodice.

The portrait is beautifully presented in the original frame that is topped with a coronet, the three strawberry leaves with balls denoting that of a Marquis/Marchioness. The frame is also glazed on the reverse to reveal hair arranged as Prince of Wales feathers set on a silk backdrop.
