1856 Ball Given by the Countess Granville at Moscow print

I have been to some fancy trade shows and theatrical events in tents, but this huge tent decorated with chandeliers is more opulent than anything I've seen.

Its 1856 and the crinoline has come to Russia! Most of the Ladies sport dome-shaped skirts adorned in various ways with flounces.
