The only coronation she could have attended dressed like this was that of George II in 1727, allowing this undated portrait to be dated. Her article in thepeerage is here.

Angelica Wharton wears a mantua, not yet compressed to a waffle, in this Vanderbank portrait. She has not powdered her hair. In this show of opulence, Lady Angelica wears gold-embroidered gloves.
