      Googling up images will discount Gerry from the 'accused'

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.

        It looks like a grenadier in the 2nd Swiss regt in french service and the style could be Embleton or possibly Eugene Lelievre. I would think more the latter.

            It's copied directly from a Raffet print of Young Guardsmen. I couldn't find it online but the pose is exactly the same.
