A bronze bust of Elizabeth Campbell, Duchess of Argyll (nee Leveson Gower) by Marochetti, is recorded in Letters from High Latitudes by Frederick Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood, 1st Marquess of Dufferin and Ava. The book tells of a journey undertaken by the Marquess in his yacht The Foam, which set sail from Scotland in July 1856, visiting Iceland and Northern Norway. The expedition was dedicated by Dufferin to his friends, the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, and Marochetti's bust of the Duchess was fixed to the front of the vessel as a figurehead. Dufferin's account of the journey, is prefaced by a lengthy poem, entitled "To the Figure-head of The Foam", describing the portrait's beneficent influence on the undertaking, and he also describes "the fixing of our sacred figure-head, executed in bronze by Marochetti, and brought along with me by rail, still warm from the furnace". Harold Nicolson, a nephew of Dufferin, in his 1937 book, Helen's Tower, quotes a letter from his uncle, written from Iceland during the voyage, asking the recipient to remember him to the Duchess of Argyll, "and to tell her she looks lovely; her face has become a beautiful bright green, a complexion which her golden crown sets off to the greatest advantage. I wish she could have seen, as we sped across, how passionately the waves of the Atlantic flung their liquid arms about her neck, and how proudly she broke through their embrace, leaving them far behind, moaning and lamenting.". Nicolson also tells how the bust, having served a a figure-head "was subsequently detached from the schooner, and placed upon the main staircase at Clandeboye, confronting a replica of itself, and (while my uncle was alive) edged with a little barricade of ferns and ornamental leaves". Clandeboye House is the family home of the Dufferins in Co. Down, Northern Ireland. There is apparently no trace of the bust of the Duchess there at the present time.
Elizabeth Leveson Gower, who married the 8th Duke of Argyll in 1844, was the oldest daughter of the 2nd Duke of Sutherland. Her younger sister, Constance Leveson Gower (later Duchess of Westminster), also sat for a bust to Marochetti (see entry).
