This charming small child portrait retains very good colours and has an engaging composition. The seated child in a white dress and wearing bright red shoes, is holding a whip for the spinning top shown in the left foreground, with an upturned cap and a carved horse form pull toy to the right foreground. It is now housed in a period moulded and gilt frame with gesso details, is a boldly executed example from the British Folk Art tradition. The surface condition and paint colours are in excellent state of preservation.
