Description
A woman in ball dress. She stands with her head cocked to the side and her left gloved hand on her hip. She is adorned with a headband bearing an upturned crescent at the front. She wears a necklace and upper arm band made of jet beads. Her dress is white with a square neckline. It has short, puffed sleeves and an empire waist. The top layer of her dress has a diamond pattern of simple black lines that creates a "V" on the bodice and then opens at the waist. It ties together at the middle of the skirt with a cord ending in black tassels. She wears white stockings and white, flat shoes with black trim.
