41st plate of album with 60 19th-century costume plates and 1 drawing of mostly women's historical costumes, featuring a variety of designs for traditional costumes from different parts of the world, as well as costumes for literary characters, including Esmeralda. This plate consists of a woman wearing a costume for a Soubrette, made up of a black taille with a white V-shape in the front, bordered by golden strips with rectangular and round red stones, and with white lace sleeves, and a dark green, calf-length skirt with three yellow stripes, one thicker than the other two at the border of the skirt, with red-and-brown scrolling motifs. The neck and belt of the dress is made up of the same pattern as the borders of the V-shape, and from the belt hangs a white apron with a red intermittent border. She wears a white lace hat adorned with a small bundle of pink roses and green leaves; another similar buckle hangs from the belt to her left. She wears a gold-and-red choker necklace, crean, long gloves, white stockings, and black low-heeled slippers with small gold rosettes.
