Ulrike Sofie, Princess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin probably by Christian Friedrich Reinhold Lisiewski (private collection)

A genealogical sketch of her is here; she was the sister-in-law of Luise Friederike von Württemberg.

Ulrike Sofie, Princess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin probably by Christian Friedrich Reinhold Lisiewski (private collection)

Christie's had this auction note, "Ulrike Sofie, Princess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin (1723-1813) small bust length, wearing a light blue dress with lace chemise and veil, pearl necklace, earrings and a wig." Her tall coiffure is not spread out as coiffures would later. I am going to call what they call a "chemise" a "fichu."
