A fancy dress costume from 1884, suggesting an Incroyable from 1798. She wears a short red, white and blue skirt, blue satin coat with tails and revers at throat; the lappet and waistcoat of old brocade, red, blue and black bow with long ends on one shoulder; gold buttons; cravat of old lace; gendarme hat, with tricolour rosette; black shoes and buckles, blue stockings. She carries an old-fashioned gold-headed cane and an eyeglass or lorgnette. Simple really.
