Présumé de la marquise de Llano dans un ovale peint by school of Anton Rafael Mengs (auctioned by Tajan)

Her costume reminds me of the costumes worn by falleras in Valencia.

From Tajan.

This is a gorgeous take on maja style with a gold hair net and gold trimmed-jacket over a gold-trimmed bodice.
