This is a CdV or carte-de-visite. I think this one is foreign.
She is a beautifully dressed lady. Her Jacket looks to be velvet with satin cuffs, she is wearing leather gloves, holding a flower and greens. She has a brooch and earrings and a marvelous satin hat that is tied to the side so that it wouldn’t cover up her brooch. Her skirt looks to be made of satin also, it seems to be a skirt with pleats with a matching apron.
I thought perhaps she was going traveling someplace.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
