This type of miniature portrait was known as Mary, Queen of Scots, for a long time.

Other Lost Portraits

«Perhaps in imitation of both Byng and Harding, Prince Frederick Duleep Singh visited a large number of houses in Norfolk and subsequently published an account of the portraits he saw in those houses. Singh noted a portrait said to depict Jane at Ketteringham Hall, home of the antiquarian Sir John Peter Boileau. Singh provided a detailed description of the painting:

H[ead] and [S]houlders]. Body, face and blue eyes all turned towards the sinister [i.e., the viewer's left], fair hair parted and flat, roll over each ear, and small row of rolls over the head, black cap on the head falling at the side and behind. Dress: Black with white fur round the neck and down the front, also on each side of the arms. Blue Background, Min[iature]. Square. Age 18.» A Queen of A New Invention, J. Stephan Edwards, p. 189
