Friederike, Princess von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt (1745-1778)

The lace on Princess Friederike's sleeves in this portrait would place this in the mid 1700s while the height of the coiffure suggests ca. 1760. The preeminence of diamond jewelry is evident in the ornamented neckband, girandole earrings, and hair jewelry.
