A Pretty Lady with Ringlets

Circa 1840


A cut and gilded full-length silhouette of a young lady dressed for the evening in a wide-shouldered dress with distinctive Victoria sleeves that are frilled at the shoulder, very full at the elbow and then narrow on the wrist, her hair is arranged in fashionable ringlets.

Cut out and laid on card with touches of watercolour to embellish the costume and hair details.
