The porcelain upon which this portrait is painted come from the Rihouet Factory. Louis Marie Francois Rihouet founded the Paris porcelain factory and was appointed from 1824 'fournisseur du roi et du duc d'Orleans (supplier of King and Duke d'Orleans).

The painting itself was executed by the well known female Parisian artist Sophie Lienard. Lienard worked in Paris and exhibited at the Salon between 1842-1845. She died in 1845 in Paris.

Lienard painted many members of the D' Orleans family . Princess Adelaide was the daughter of Louis Philippe, duc d'Orleans and his wife Louise Marie Adelaide de Bourbon-Penthievre.
