A fine watercolour and gouache of a young dandy with high shirt collar and silk cravat or stock beneath a navy velvet jacket. It is set in an oval gilt brass frame within a rectangular black lacquer frame. The unusual gilt brass hanging loop features George III as roman emperor surrounded by acorns and oak leaves.
The painting is beautifully executed. There are two small spots of foxing and a tiny scratch in the original domed glass.
