A merchant captain with Elton's quadrant

A three-quarter-length portrait facing to left in a blue coat edged with white fur. The sitter holds an Elton quadrant and stands against a background of rocks. The prominence given to the experimental quadrant may indicate that the sitter is Elton himself or someone closely associated with him, possibly Captain Walter Hoxton. He was captain of the ship 'Baltimore' and tested Elton's quadrant on a voyage from the Thames to Maryland and back in 1730. There is a merchant ship on the right.
