1560 unknown lady by ? (National Portrait Gallery, London UK)

There is a similar, almost matching, portrait at Blickling Hall by Henry Shaw identified as "Unknown lady, called Mary Queen of Scots."

Now this is a partlet! She also wears a very tight corset. This charming portrait shows a Lady wearing rolled and fully-puffed sleeves and an elaborately draped necklace.
