1824 Countess of Dyhrn with her child by Józef Oleszkiewicz (Lviv National Art gallery - Lviv Ukraine)

I believe this is Elisabeth of Dyhrn (1800 - 1866). Wikipedia has an article about the house here, including, "The Lords of Dyhrn have gained the title of Barons (Reichsfreiherr) in the 17th century from the Habsburgian family and the title of prussian and bohemian Counts (Reichsgraf) in the second half of 18th century, which was also the golden age of this eminent noble house. There are only few members of this family still living."

Countess Dyhrn wears a very Napoléonic dress, especially for 1824, in this Oleszkiewicz portrait. The back looks like it comes from a robe a la française.
