The glazing on the fron of the case has an eglomise border, with the glazed reverse of the case having opalescent glass on top of which is hairwork fastened with a pearl band and gold threads.

The condition of the painting is excellent, as is that of the case. The hairwork on the reverse has some disturbances. Sight size is 2" by 1 5/8", with a case size of 2" by 2 3/8".

Provenance: From a private Central Virginia collection belonging to the descendants of British Brigadier General Sir William Thomas Francis Horwood.

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: John Cox Dillman Engleheart (1783-1862) was the nephew of George Engleheart. From the age of 14 he worked for and was trained by his uncle, copying many of his miniatures and also developing his own style. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from the age of eighteen until his mid-forties, showing a total of approximately 155 works in that period. Although he had a highly successful career, it was cut short by ill health.

His works are in the National Portrait Gallery, the V & A, and other museums.
