Rectangular miniature on ivory; Abbott is turned slightly to the right of the picture; he wears a black waistcoat, white blouse and cravat; to his right a pilaster column; to the left a brown curtain; he sits on a red chair. Inscribed top right:
Half-length portrait on a much reduced scale; Abbott is turned to the right; he wears a white cravat and black coat; the background is grey; framed in an oval. Marked on back "Anna Tonelli" "Fece in Londra 1794" and "Charles Abbot 1st Lord Colchester". Charles Abbot 1st Lord Colchester would have been in his 40s at the time of painting so it is likely that either the artist or sitter is mis-attributed.
