A Silhouette from Nearly 200 Years Ago

I posted back in 2012 about a trip my GGG Grandfather, Tom Jones, took with his friend Jim Welfair to London (described here). This was before 1841 when he married. During this trip he had a silhouette done which my GG Grandfather mentions he still has . Apparently this has been passed down the generations and I have recently just learnt my cousin still has it. A scan of it is shown below:
