1861 (24 February) Frances, Countess Dowager of Waldegrave by Camille Silvy Paul Frecker

An excellent biographical sketch of this Liberal Party hostess can be found here.

From Paul Frecker; sepia tone removed (and re-added only to border with Photoshop) and lightness added by gogm.

Countess Frances wears a dark half dome crinoline with sleeves featuring puffs by the shoulders and contrasting cuffs and buttons in this 1861 Silvy photo.
