Impressions taken from this plate  (1)
A Lady wearing a hat with a feather dates from 1873 or 1874. The butterfly signature on the sole known impression fits with these dates ().
It has been dated from the costume of the sitter, with the apron-style overskirt, fitted bodice, the high, lace-trimmed collar, sloping shoulders and narrow sleeves. 1
