Description
A woman in the clothing of the court of King Henry IV. She wears a gold tiara at the crown of her head and she wears strands of pearls in her hair. She wears pearl earrings and a double-strand pearl necklace with a pendant. The standing collar of the dress is wide and white with pointed lace edging. The bodice is burnt sienna striped with red. It has long, horizontally striped sleeves with lace trimmed cuffs. At the dropped waist is a box pleated ruffle, probably over a wheel farthingale. The underskirt is burgundy with gold, with the over skirt's green lining turned back at the front. She wears a full length blue cape, which she holds up off the floor with her right hand. In her left hand she holds a closed, white fan with gold detailing. The point of her shoe, which matches the bodice, is visible.
