1813 Hon. Mrs Thomas Hope full face in a red velvet dress by Henry Bone (location unknown to gogm)

In keeping with the spirit of the day, this Lady is just an extension of her husband with no name of her own. However, thepeerage has an article for him and her. Her article identifies her as Louisa Beresford.

From www.easyart.com.

Louisa appears to be in danger of having a "wardrobe malfunction" given the deep décolleté neckline of her Empire era dress. Her white sleeves show she wears a chemise that provides a modesty piece.
