Beat up but worth it

This cabinet card was not always treated with love.  I don’t know what happened to it.  Did it get stuck in a frame or album?  Who knows.  Luckily, the subject of the photo is intact.SAM_2760 a

The hair is 1880’s and the skirt seems to be natural form so I would place this in the early 1880’s.

I bought this card, in spite of the damage, because I really liked the detail on her bodice.SAM_2760 b

There are pin tucks on the upper sleeve and braiding or soutache on the body and cuffs of it.  Very nice. Well fitted too.
