1879 Sissi in rubies by Georg Raab (Schloss Schönbrunn, Wien)

Georg Raab here portrays Empress Elisabeth wearing a magnificent assortment of rubies and a gorgeous dress in between the bustle peaks of the early 70s and mid 80s.

The next image shows that the fluffy fringing of the layers of her dress are made of feathers rather than fur or puffed cloth.
