This is what looks to be a watercolor portrait by a company called Lafayette Ltd, who had offices in Belfast, London, etc. There is a name written on the back (actually there is a name written in pencil near the top, and then a name written in pen as well) that appears to be Mrs. Firth Du Toit. I did find a Charlotte Firth who married a C.P. Du Toit in South Africa circa 1860s.
I am putting this in the "help" section because I'd like to know more about Lafayette ltd and whether or not they painted portraits, and also if anyone can perhaps read the writing on the back (maybe someone will arrive at a different name?) Thank you!
