ca. 1800 Noble Lady in blue dress by ? (Leon Wilnitsky)

From the Leon Wilnitsky Web site; height adjusted to 25.4 cm (10 inches) at 28.35 pixels/cm.

The dress looks like it has a zone or tent bodice, but this may be a jeweled bodice ornament adorning a sheath dress. It is difficult to conceive of this being worn around 1800.
