The portrait is taken from the waist up. The lady sits turned to face forward, looking at us. Her left elbow rests on the corner of a tapestry covered table on the right; the other hand rests in her lap, in this well composed photograph. Her hair is wavey, parted in the middle, and gathered behind her head, she wears earrings and a ring on her right hand. Her dress is dark with long sleeves, against a plain dark background. The daguerreotype is set in an ornate case.
