Young Woman In Opulent Dress

SCAN0077

Cabinet card of a young woman in what appears to be mourning attire although maybe a bit too fancy for mourning it could just very well be her”little black dress”? Her black dress has been adorned with meticulously sewn jet beaded appliquéd and set with a large brooch.We can also see where a piece of the beaded appliqued got caught on the buttons of her dress.
A beautiful example of late 19th century fashion.
