1890 Contessa de Lesse, nata Berthier by Giovanni Boldini (private collection)

I cannot find enough to name this Countess of Leusse.

From kaifineart.com/2014/09/giovanni-boldini.html; the entire left edge was fixed and larger spots removed with Photoshop.

This shows the decline of bustles and late 1880s style. The sleeves are reduced to straps, but they are still up turned. She could be wearing a Swiss belt with an opening in the double vee part.
