Description
A young woman stands with her left foot on a stool and holds aloft a cup containing pearls, a watch and other items of value. She rests her right hand on a table near a lyre and a sheet of music inscribed with the national anthem and 'God Save Great / George our King'. On the right is a table with a vase draped in purple, and a crown and sceptre. She is dressed in a blue garment over yellow, and wears a purple scarf and bejewelled belt.
