Miniature portrait of Henry Leavenworth against gray background depicting the subject in a pattern 1832 - 1851 Brigadier General's dark blue coat with gold epaulettes, buff collar and buff cuffs. Leavenworth's hair and eyebrows are brown and eyes are grey. The portrait appears on a thin sheet of ivory which is laminated to a second sheet to add strength. Two finger prints from glue or lacquer appear at the top. A slight line in the lower left corner appears to be a repair from a chip broken off from the portrait and mended for the donor. When given to the museum, the portrait was encased in a slightly oversized daguerreotype frame.
