1667 Countess Elizabeth Wilmot, née Malet (also known as Elizabeth Mallet), portrait by Sir Peter Lely (location unknown to gogm)

From daoinesidh.livejournal; image made lighter by gogm.

Elizabeth Wilmot was presumably proud of her hair, here elaborately dressed and jeweled and ending, in part, with a long sausage curl draped over her shoulder.
