Comtesse de Lavagnac

From Paul Frecker; sepia tone removed by gogm.

The Countess' dress has pagoda sleeves that are not as wide as in the early 1860s and she wears a half dome crinoline decorated with bands of narrow flounces. Her cuffs aare decorated with matching frills. She appears to be wearing a fan front-like bodice without folds while the buttons may be entirely ornamental.
