1699 Mme Roig, née Theresa Gazanyola, en coiffe à la Fontange by ? (location unknown to gogm)

A Google translation from this Web site is, "The inventory of the family has the description of this portrait: 'Lady Teresa Roig and Gazaniole with a very high cap with ribbons and lace; then in fashion.'"

It continues, "The dark material of the mantua, adorned with with rich gold embroidery on the boned stomacher, is austere reminiscent of Hispanic modes of prior periods. 

Theresa Gazanyola married the noble citizen of Perpignan Jerome Roig i Pagès, Doctor of Laws in 1698."

This excellent portrait shows that a Fontanges headdress originated from a cap. The turn-of-the-century-coiffure has a substantial, but not overwhelming, Fontanges headdress and fripon curls on the forehead.
