Thx a lot for the pic of the wonderful bust! Would love to have one of her...

Here is one of Sophies handkerchiefs, from an exhibition at Artstetten. It was awesome to see it:

Well, if it belongs to the Hohenberg family, it isn't in possession of Sophie's descendants anymore.
Ich aber breite trauernd aus
die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

I think the handkerchiefs and the lininen that used to belong to Sophie Charlotte belong to her decendents now living in Australia. I was invited to view them the next time I go there. This one maybe from a different collection.

Very beautiful pictures of Sophie! Its a pitty, it looks like that there arent much pictures of her in bustle dresses. I love that style of fashion and I think she looks lovely in that gowns...

Does anybody have more information about their home at Vincennes? I read that they lived at the Avenue Reine Blanche, but thats all I could find :/
I also know that they lived at the Hotel Campbell in the Rue de Friedland at Paris and in Tyrol in the Mentlberg Castle in the 1890s.

They also lived in Bushy House in England after her marriage.

This of Sophie in bustle gown is simply great!!  :-* I think that this style of clothing made her to look much better than the crinoline gowns! Agree that there aren't much of her in this style, the hairdo is unusual too. Thanks so much!! Some help about the aproximate date of it.
