I acquired this stereoview on eBay recently, convinced that I recognised the dressing table mirror from another photograph. After a good deal of hunting in my library I was delighted to find that the photo I had in mind was in the V&A collection, catalogued as Academic Study by John Watson c.1850. Having enlarged the stereo, one can see that the dressing table and mirror are definitely the same in both photos. And, as the curator at the V&A put it "If it is the same model, how lovely to see her face, after all these years of her being so mysterious."
