Princess Hélène de Bauffremont by Daniel Saint or another (Leon Wilnitsky)

A genealogical sketch of a Princess who may be this Lady is found here. If that Hélène de Bauffrement and this Lady are the same, she was born in 1774. She married late, in 1817, to Marie Gabriel Florent Auguste de Choiseul, Comte de Choiseul-Gouffier.

This shows dress making the transition from the old to the new. The dress could be called a chemise à la reine due to the collar and wide waist band although the sleeves are too tight.
