<p style='text-align: justify;'> An ambrotype portrait of a very young girl. The child is seated and is wearing a dress that buttons down the front and has frilled short sleeves; she looks to hold a ball in her hand. The image is set into an oval gilt locket with a hanging ring. On the reverse is an in memoriam scene, possibly ivory on dark pink fabric (resembling water silk) comprising of a cherub or putti figure looking up at an urn stood on a square column. </p>
