Very beautiful. Is this the same lady as the Sophie d'Orleans who was one of the daughters of Princess Henriette of Belgium, Duchess of Vendome? I know she had a daughter named Sophie, who was sadly handicapped, and died young.
I believe it is. I don't have any other pictures of her quite as good as this one but from other photos of her and family I think this is 'that' Princess Sophie. Very sad what happened, they were all beautiful children.
A bit off topic, but I have managed to get hold of a book by Henriette on Madame Elisabeth of France, sister of Louis XVI. You may recall that Henriette worked for the cause of beatification of Mme. E., so I am most curious to read the book, and I hope to post on it at some point.
I will look forward to that!
Is this Picture in Sapia Tone? THat said it is Lovely, and she had large eyes.
