Almost certainly Mrs. Marianne Zanzi, wife of Alexander Zanzi, an Italian silk merchant, and mother of Alexandrina, whose portrait is the next in this section. The family appear on the 1861 census, living at 32, Brompton Crescent, Knightsbridge, London. At the time of the census, Madame Zanzi, who was born in London, gave her age as 36, so she was born in or about 1825.
In 1870 Alexander Zanzi is listed as an Associate of the British Archaeological Association. At this time, he was still living at 32, Brompton Crescent. A few years later, the Times (6 January 1876) briefly mentioned that 'In consequence of the death of their senior, Mr Alexander Zanzi, the house of Zanzi and Co. has ceased to exist, but the business will be carried on by their successors, Messrs C. Longhi and co., under that title.'
