1840s Herzogin Adelheid von Nassau, geborene von Anhalt-Dessau, in der Spielbank im Kurhaus Wiesbaden by ? (probably Spielbank Wiesbaden - Wiesbaden, Hesse, Germany)

From Wikimedia; the upper background, her face and not her hair, neckline area other than the necklace, her arms above the necklace and arm band, and the upper part of her skirt behind her left arm have been blurred. The combination of the graininess of the canvas and the resulting reflections and shadows was overwhelming. Her coiffure and cornet are left intact and the details of her coiffure are almost lost. Also posted to Grand Duchess Marie Adelheid of Luxembourg’s new Subalbum here.
