The portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Tredwell are double-sided. These miniatures are thought to be after John Trumbull, but not done by him. The husband is shown in an elegant maroon frock coat, black waistcoat and white cravat, while his wife is less formally dressed in a large frilled cap and lace shawl.
