Victoria of Baden

The portrait on Princess Victoria's order bow is probably of King Oscar II. Wikimedia dates this to the 1880s or earlier. I had dated it to ca. 1900 based on the complexity of the sleeves. However the hourglass figure seen in the next image caused me to reasses the date.

Victoria of Baden wears ca. 1880 formal dress with a vee neckline, elaborate sleeves, and a close hourglass figure skirt in this photo. Her criss-cross bodice appears to have a lapel on one side and may end in a tablier.
