Unknown - portrait of Captain Dorsey

This miniature portrait is inscribed on the reverse "Captain Dorsey, Shanghai, China - Painted by a Chinaman". Thus this is one of the uncommon miniatures painted in Shanghai or Hing Kong. Also shown is a metal example of the insignia he is wearing. It was issued for use on a visored 1895 Pillbox Hat. Nothing more is known about Captain Dorsey. 828
