Graphite sketches of a woman in a corseted gown, a castle, a horse's head, and a ribbon (?) with a zigzag pattern. On the left is a sketch of a full-length woman facing left. She is wearing a corseted gown and large bonnet-style hat. To the right is a small circle with castle or cityscape set against a dark gouach background. To the right is a study of a horse's head, which has been scribbled over in graphite. Below is a small sketch of a ribbon (?) with a zigzag pattern, possibly of a belt or garment trimming.
