Painted in sepia tones set in the original gold bracelet clasp frame, the reverse with glazed oval aperture of hair within gold mount and outer bright-cut border (glass cracked)

Robertson's powerful draftsmanship shines through in this enchanting portrait. With just a few shades of brown and white the artist has managed to capture a true likeness.
