Miss Emily Scott was a miniature painter who lived at Park Village West, London and later at 14 Maddox Street, just off Regent Street.

She exhibited her works at the Royal Academy and Suffolk Street between 1836 and 1855 when she moved to Manchester.

This beautiful watercolour portrait of the four Elphinstone children, John, Maria, Althea and Alexa is signed and dated 1841 at bottom right.

It is in excellent condition and is in its original frame.

A noble Scottish family with several Earldom’s in their lineage including those of Mar and Kinnoull, the Elphinstones are closely related to royalty on the late Queen Mother’s side by the marriage of Lady Mary Bowes-Lyon to the 16th Lord Elphinstone.

However, the family has many lines and we have been unable to identify to which particular branch these children belong.

Many family portraits were dispersed as part of the Elphinstone Trust sales a few years ago.

There is a note on the reverse which states that at one time it was part of the estate of Mrs Marjorie Leather who was their great niece and possibly painted for her.

The frame is the original.     

It is dated and signed in full at bottom right.  

Price: £650
