or rather Matilda but Maude for short. Her hair is grayer than it appears--her thin lips, thin eyelashes and photographer's inexpert removal of lines around her eyes all suggest Maude is a matriarch-- wise and sweetly wizened. Yes, it can happen--the sweetly wizened bit. I'm counting on it.
I'm sure she did her own needle work and lovely it is at that.
Her earrings don't appear to have a stone for certain but if they do I reckon it to be a garnet.
In any event, she's lovely and quite likely to have been a beauty in her day.
