This beautiful cut and highlighted silhouette is in undisturbed condition. As clearly stated on the back it depicts Anna Wilhelmina Lambe at the age of 3 in 1848, being the sister of David Wight Lambe. Later she became Mrs DF Underhill. The original framing was done by Aitken Dott (1815-92) & Son of 26 South Castle Street, Edinburgh. They established their firm there in 1842. The coat of arms for the Lambe name can also be seen. The silhouette is wonderfully cut and applied to the card backing which has a landscape watercolour decoration. The gold mount and all the framing attributes are as originally sealed. Three members of the Frith family managed the Royal Victoria gallery (1837-c. 1854). The Mckechnie reference (p265) has an extensive entry, and we have seen that the Friths traveled the country extensively. The trip to Scotland followed their lengthy visit to Ireland. They cut the silhouettes of other members of the Lambe/Wight family on the same visit – Mrs Margaret Wight or Lambe, Mr U Wight, and AJ Lambe. Some of these silhouettes were signed as can be seen elsewhere on the site making this attribution a strong one.
