Mrs Elizabeth Cox (nee Crispo)
A rectangular miniature in watercolour on ivory, unframed but in a larger rectangular beige card mount, with a gilded edge to the window. It is a pair with F9530, which shows the the sitter's husband, the naval surveyor Henry Laird Cox. Mrs Cox is shown bust length, half-turned to her left against a brownish background, but with her head facing out to the viewer. Her shoulders are bare over an almost straight-topped black gown with a broad white-lace edge band known as a bertha. At the central join of this she wears a cameo brooch apparently showing a male head in left profile. She also wears a red-silk mantle low around the shoulders. Her hair is fair, parted centrally and gathered back, over her ears. Her eyes appear to be hazel but, unfortunately, what must have been a fine image of a beautiful lady has suffered damage, including significant loss of pigment on the face, hair and neck.
