A different copy of the same photograph without signature and date is found on Wikipedia.de. The date is given as ca. 1900. Queen Elena signed this particular copy in 1915.

"1900" Queen Elena of Italy signed 1915

The dress has a train that emerges from the embroidered jacket and wrap. I believe this is the same gold-colored dress portrayed in 1913 by Gioja. The sleeves end in tassels and the coiffure, neckline, and jewelry are consistent.
