Description
A woman in a dark blue-gray three-quarter sleeved dress holds a bouquet of pink and white flowers. She is turned sideways to the viewer, with her head turned away showing her bonnet. Her dress has a high collar, with a white ruffle edging it, with draping at the back and a tassel hanging at the center back. The sleeves are decorated with pleating, rosettes, and tassels at the hems. The underskirt is vertically pleated with narrow knife edged pleats, with four pleated tiers at the hem. The topmost tier has sections arranged with a diagonal effect. The overskirt is elaborately draped into triangular sections with multiple groups of tassels on the points, and at the center front, some with rosettes matching the sleeves. She is wearing tan long gloves. Her bonnet is grey with ruffles and bows and is decorated with red flowers or ruffles, and tied under her chin with a matching grey ribbon.
