Elizabeth Nicholson and Granddaughter


Three-quarter length group portrait shows Elizabeth Hopper Nicholson, Jr (Mrs. Joseph Nicholson Jr) and granddaughter Elizabeth Nicholson Noel. The older woman wears a high bonnet with lace and blue ribbon, a brown dress with a black collar, and a white fichu. Seated in a Chippendale chair, she holds an apple in her right hand, as does the child. The blonde-haired child wears a white dress as she sits in her grandmother's lap.
