Emilie Gräfin Zichy-Ferraris by ?

Emilie Gräfin Zichy-Ferraris by ? From www.europeana.eu

There are a series of Emilies preceding Emilie, Gräfin Zichy-Ferraris who was born in 1847, according to her article in theperage. This Emilie was portrayed in the middle 1830s. So she could be Emilie Gräfin von Reichenbach-Lessonitz (1820-1891) or Emilie Gräfin von Reichenbach-Lessonitz (1791-1843). The sitter looks more like a 40-something than a teenager.
