He wears a ribbon in red, black and white, probably a medal or order of some kind. The portrait is signed “Krall, pxt. 1818” and set in a period gilt brass brooch frame. Measures 2 1/8” by 1 3/4”. The portrait came from a private collection in Jersey, England, via Morton’s Auction Exchange, in New Orleans, 1969.
