1901 (portrait date) Dress worn by Franca Florio (Galleria del Costume di Palazzo Pitti, Palazzo Pitti - Firenze, Toscana, Italy) From artidecorativesicilia.wordpress.com:franca-florio-1873-1950:

This dress has been dated to the 1890s, but it has to be the later 90s given the lack of leg-o-mutton sleeves and pouter pigeon bodice.
