1620s (early) Elizabeth of Bohemia, the Winter Queen by Michiel Jansz. van Miereveldt (private collection) From magnoliabox.com shadows

The dress is routine late farthingale, but the matching lace of cuffs and ruffs is sophisticated. Her hair grows a forest of pearls from jeweled roots. This dress probably has tabbed sleeves and may have false sleeves lost in the shadows; she appears to be grasping something with her left hand. She is wearing a reddish cap or hair ornament.
