Woman circa 1810's AD

67 Woman circa 1810's AD, 6 x 6 inches, Paper Plate Lithography, $60
Yet another feminine and romantic hairstyle and I was able to narrow the date down to a decade withing the 1800's which is always nice.  This hairstyle reminds me of... dare I say bedhead? There is a sexual appeal to this one both with the undulating curves and the bit of hair that has fallen out of the bun which itself is loose and perhaps a bit tousled from sleeping? or perhaps from a sexual encounter? Or maybe just a long day of house work.... the narrative has endless possibilities...
