Queen Marie Amélie wearing pearls

Sepia tone removed by gogm.

Using a gauzy covering between higher and lower neckline dates back to Renaissance partlets; Amélie's partlet is covered by her embroidered jacket. It is here in the 1890s images because her jacket appears to have leg-o-mutton sleeves.
