Maude Valérie White is depicted full-length, facing right. The piano could be described as having a Sheraton revival case, a style revived in particular by Broadwood at the end of the nineteenth century in an attempt to evoke the elegance of the late English harpsichord case. The oval marquetry panel in the cheek, probably of satin wood, is typical, as is the coupled pair of lighter, tapered, front legs instead of a single fat turned or faceted leg of the old, dark grand piano.
