1858 Wanda, Fürstin von und zu Putbus (1837-1867), née Freiin von Veltheim-Bartensleben by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (auctioned by Sotheby's)

There is next to nothing about her, but there is a German-language Wikipedia article for her husband Wilhelm Malte II with information about her and their family here.

The image was difficult to fix with Photoshop due to the large number of torn canvas, wrinkled canvas, spot, and smudge flaws in the image. The original can be seen here, Sotheby's description of the article being auctioned.

Lady Wanda's black bodice is adorned by a ruched white collar and two red bows in Mme. de Pompadour style over a lace jabot. She appears to be wearing lace and/or sheer over-sleeves. Her lower sleeves are probably covered by a wrap. I cannot resolve what the two gold-tan vertical strands are on her waistline.
