Princess de Lamballe figurine

The skirt on this figurine demonstrates that pannier skirts could be elegant if they weren't too wide and if the sides were rounded, not square. This figurine also shows how texture, as well as color, could be exploited on elaborate dresses. It also shows how swags of flowers would have looked.
