1837 Duchesse d'Orleans as a bride, nee Princess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin by ? (private collection) From Dr. Wolfgang Lorenz e-mail cropped frame

Helene's dress is dated, looking more appropriate for 1832 than her wedding in 1837, with the huge puffed sleeves and epaulettes. Her lace epaulettes are spectacular.
