The standing knee high portrait of King Gustav III shows him in his red Lesser Seraphim velvet dress. He carries the cross of the Order of the Seraphim, the shoulder band and the grand brilliant star, the shoulder band of the Order of the Sword, and the brilliant sign of the Knight Commander. The cloak is also decorated with the Seraphim grand star. The King is standing near by a table partly covered by the ermine brimmed mantle. The Kings hand is resting upon a grey hat with black and white plumes laying on the table. Behind the hat a half hidden royal crown is recognized.
