Elegant endless necklace of freshwater pearls echoing those worn in the hair of an unknown lady in a portrait miniature of an unknown woman, by Samuel Cotes (1734-1818), dated 1778 and now held in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Miniatures were usually intimate gifts given within the family but some rulers, such as James I gave large numbers as diplomatic or political gifts. They were likely to be painted when a family member was going to be absent for significant periods, whether a husband or son going to war or a daughter getting married. Samuel Cotes was a popular miniaturist, painting both on enamel and on ivory, he exhibited from 1760 to 1789 at the exhibitions of the Incorporated Society of Artists, of which he was a fellow, and at the Royal Academy. This necklace combines a soft palette of freshwater pearls.
