Veiled Turkish Lady, ca. 1870s


“Dame Turque volée” by Pascal Sebah, ca. 1870s

Another lady by the same photographer in the same attire, ca. 1880s:



And there is another photo by the same photographer of a lady in the same garb as these ladies above, see my other post here. Note the lady on the left! (see close up below):


Which makes me wonder: was their outfit part of a ‘studio outfit’ that the photographer kept to dress up the ladies that wanted to be photographed, or was it so fashionable that all the ladies had a similar one?
