The Marquise de Maintenon wears a jacket bodice and mantua over
half-covered in fur in this print. While the skirt draping in the last image was obscured, it is
visible here - she wears a mantua. She wears a jacket bodice that curves around
over the top of her bustle. Her hood is not part of a cape while her skirt is
lined with fur over the whole lower half. What looks like a jeweled band
secures the fur lining to her skirt.
