'Famille rose' figure of a Dutch lady. The Dutch woman is standing with her hands by her sides, her clothes modelled as if blown to one side by the wind, and is painted in 'famille rose' enamels. She is wearing a dark blue patterned cape, lined in purplish blue, a broad ruffled collar, pink skirt, tight, laced bodice in yellow, green and brown, pale blue blouse and cloud-patterned apron. The lace-edged headdress which covers her hair has distinctive wings over each ear; her red shoes are pointed and around her wrists are twin-strand pearl bracelets.
