The frame on the Devis is perhaps the finest of the three frames of this type in the collection. It is also the earliest if it is contemporary with the painting.
The frame on Reynold’s Lady Frances Finch is very similar in detail though either through resurfacing or quality of making it lacks some of the crispness of detail seen in the Devis frame.
