Elisabeth de Valois reine d'Espagne

From the Bibliothèque nationale de France Web site.

Elisabeth de Valois reine d'Espagne BnF

Isabel is wearing a plain partlet under a delicate carcanet. Her ruff is an extension of her collar. Her bodice appears to end in a serrated opening for her sleeves. In an era of heavy jewelry, Elisabeth's are remarkably delicate and elegant.
