There are splendid feathers in her velvet hat. Her fancy dress includes a horizontally striped bodice. She's sitting sidesaddle, so we see her shoes. The rocking horse moved slightly. There are mat abrasions at the very bottom. 1/6 plate in a decorated elliptical mat, in a case with repaired spine.
