Bust-length portrait of a dark-haired young lady in décolleté white muslin dress or wrap and blue scarf. The sitter has a long string of pearls around her neck, from which is suspended a miniature of a man in a three-corner hat. She holds this miniature in her left hand.
This miniature has been attributed to Charles Fraser, a painter of miniatures, portraits in oils and landscapes. He spent most of his life in his native city of Charleston depicting its leading citizens. There is another almost identical miniature in the Gibbes Museum, Charleston (accession number XX1902).
The frame post-dates this miniature.
