The copper plate is different in size from any other plate. It was cancelled with numerous fine lines across the face.
The copper plate may have been sold at the time of Whistler's bankruptcy, bought by the Fine Art Society or Robert Dunthorne (b. ca 1851), and exchanged for lithographs by Dunthorne with Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958), who gave it to the University of Glasgow in 1935.
