ca. 1900 Lady Paget in a Worth tea gown

There are many Ladies Paget, but my best guess is this is Walburga Paget who has this article in thepeerage, "Countess Walburga Ehrengarde Helena de Hohenthal F, #33907, d. 11 October 1929

Countess Walburga Ehrengarde Helena de Hohenthal married Rt. Hon. Sir Augustus Berkeley Paget, son of Rt. Hon. Sir Arthur Paget and Lady Augusta Fane, on 20 October 1860.1 She died on 11 October 1929.

She was the daughter of Count Charles Frederic Antony de Hohenthal. Her married name became Paget. She held the office of Dame d'Honneur to the Princess Royal Frederick William of Prussia.

Tea gowns are the relaxed fit garments of the day and offer the lady a chance to avoid highly constricting corsets. Her diaphanous cape or coat may have hanging sleeves.
