Diamond-Shaped 1890’s Photo

scan235-1This is a photo of a lovely woman sporting her late 1890’s look – you can see just a wisp of those large leg ‘o mutton sleeves of the time period.  She has a bodice inset that corresponds nicely with the solid material of the rest of her dress.  The dark underpart of the ruffle also gives a nice touch to the outfit.

Even without the gigantic sleeves we could date this photo to the late 1890’s due to its unusual shape, and more so the saw-toothed edges and textured card surface.

Unfortunately no name of either subject or photographer.
