This double portrait was formerly identified as William Cecil, Lord Burleigh (1520–98) and his second wife Mildred Cooke (1526–89). The lady wears a prominent pendant hung from a string of pearls, engraved with what appears to be a phoenix – the heraldic emblem of the Seymours, adopted by Elizabeth I – symbolic of Christ's Resurrection and, as always being born afresh from flames and ashes, uniqueness and survival in adversity.
