Though similar in quality and style to miniature portraits by Clarissa Peters (Mrs. Moses B. Russell), we attribute this likeness to another hand. This fine miniature portrait depicts a contented little girl with large brown eyes and flaxen hair, half-length, wearing a pink dress and holding a rose, seated in a brown-painted tablet back Windsor armchair. Woven flaxen colored hair from the sitter is preserved on the backside of the locket under glass.
