Maybe Archduchess Maria Theresa of Austria (1845–1927), the daughter of Archduke Albert, Duke of Teschen and Princess Hildegard of Bavaria?

If the label is correct...Which Maria Teresa?

She doesn't look like any of Maria Theresas from the Habsburg clan.

ops i  confused with the images that Zukuntfsseele posted.

I think like Svetabel, i dont think its a Habsburg archduchess. This must be another case of unintentional (or intentional) mislabeled image

Would be interesting to ask the seller how he / she got the idea or knows that it's a Habsburg Archduchess.  ;D

sometimes they just invent a royal procedence to got more money from the item. Its seems thats a common practice on ebay....

Yes, sad but true. And unfortunately a lot of people get cheated and buy those items. That's why I usually tell fellow collectors to ask for a second opinion before buying something they are not sure of. In a forum, for example.

Maria Theresia in question had grey hair when she aged and on this pic she would have to be 65 years old and the woman in the portrait doesn't look like a 65 year old...

It's probably no Habsburg member at all.

Hello,
Mostly I'm able to find confirmation in books or reliable sites about the identity of a sitter but I'm having problems with this one ....
I believe it's the Erzherzogin Gisela in early youth.
Does anybody know where I can confirm this ? (book or reliable website ?)


Thank you for your help !

Hello,
Sorry for asking the same question in the Elisabeth part IV section as well - overlooked this topic.

So again my question:
Mostly I'm able to find confirmation in books or reliable sites about the identity of a sitter but I'm having problems with this one ....
I believe it's the Empress Elisabeth but possibly it's her sister Marie Sophie.
Does anybody know where I can confirm this ? (book or reliable website ?)


Thank you for your help !

Hi Jan

Why do you believe that's the Empress? I ask as the sitter doesn't resemble Elisabeth or her sisters. What's a source of the photo? (if it's not a secret).

Hello,

It came with other photos on the Habsburgs.
I have found one or two photos of Elisabeth or Marie Sophia where she looks quite the same but which were not convincing me.

It is  -by the way- a cdv by Adolf Ost, Wien.

Ofcourse it's possible it got mixed up with the Habsburg cdv's by mistake !
