Portrait Of A Lady With A Floral Lace Cap

DESCRIPTION

A large half-length Victorian portrait depicting a young lady in a beautifully decorated floral lace cap.

By the 1860s, women tended to wear dress caps and bonnets that sat back on the head and were less obtrusive than earlier versions - ”no longer bonnets but plaques of lace trimmed with the tiniest of flowers” (Ladies’ Treasury, 1866).

In this portrait, the sitter is wearing a highly fashionable lace cap that’s been carefully decorated with red roses and green leaves. She’s also wearing a long gold chain that extends to her waist.

The painting is housed within a contemporary black frame with gold trim.
