Princess Elisabeth zu Solms-Braunfels (1837-1927)

I can find nothing about her besides this image and a citation in without other information besides her father being Wilhelm zu Solms-Braunfels (1801 1868).

This is a good example of pre-crinoline day dress. Her dress has very mild pagoda sleeves and under-sleeves, what may be a criss-cross bodice revealing a frilly chemisette, and a vee waistline under a cinched waistline.
