1875 Maria Alexandrina von Mecklenburg Schwerin Rußland EB

This was advertised as being from 1875, but the very full skirt suggests a year or so earlier. Her over-skirt is angled and trimmed with a stepped lace ruffle. Their is another lace flounce beneath all of the horizontal flounces of her middle skirt. Is she wearing a veil? A wrap?
