    This was a Cafe Storme/Mokarex figure. A representation of Virginia Oldoini (1837-1899), an eccentric aristocrat who loved to pose for the camera in flamboyant costumes and unusual settings.She was also the mistress of Napoleon III.

    I made a mistake and thought that her name was Adele d'Affry, similar title and time period. A new label will have to be made.

    Although as excellent as it is, I decided that the figure had to be improved, to conform to the vampish nature of her personality. I made changes to her dress, her hair and the feather fan. The dress was overpainted with irisdiscent white, to suggest silk.
