Wonderful quality Georgian portrait, a typed label to the reverse identifying the sitter as 'George Cooke who was a farrier'. His clothes are clearly fine and his white stock has a fine stick pin decorated with a running white horse; a fob seal and watch key are suspended from a red ribbon at his waist.


Within an excellent Carlo Maratta frame decorated with a gesso leaf and shield scotia and a pin-centred carved ribbon.


English circa 1835.


o.s:32.75 in x 37.75 in  

s.s:24.5 in x 29.5 in 


The sitter is likely to be The George Cooke listed in 1817 as with the Worshipful Company of Farriers and as a 'Beadle'.

The son of our sitter married a Sophia Charlotte Whiteus, the granddaughter of Anne Stocks.
