"1666" Duchess of Portsmouth in undress


From eBay.

This was not fashion in 1666 - the woman for whom her headdress is named was about five years old in 1666. Flip the second six to make a nine and the illustration is valid, although Duchess of Portsmouth Louise de Kérouaille was essentially run out of town when Charles II died in 1685.
