Marquise de Manzanedo From detint 1.2

This portrait is often dated to 1870 based on the caption. This is not an 1870 dress. However it is right for around 1890, just after mega-bustles subsided and before leg-o-mutton sleeves blossomed to epic proportions. Her bodice has a stomacher-like triangular center-section.
