Princess Elvira wearing evening dress with a cuirasse bodice

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine by Svetabel on 10 July 2008; detail-enhanced by gogm. I could not bring out the neckline.

Princess Elvira was probably photographed in the later 1870s based on her cuirasse bodice and slender skirt.
