Glass plate negative of a fresco by Nicola Consoni (1814–84) depicting a group of putti with a goat. Within the group, one putto has a drum, another holds a cudgel. The fresco is located in the Promenade Gallery, Buckingham Palace.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 2101937.
