Annushka's Hat

Annushka, 1767, by Ivan Argunov

I found this little lady and her dainty hat over at The Dutchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century. Her name is Annushka and she was a Kalmyk serf in Russia. The artist, Ivan Argunov, was also a serf belonging to the same noble family.
