I would estimate her age to be around 30 years, give or take a few

I can see similar hairstyles and fashion in photos from the 1880s, but really not sure

I was thinking quite a lot older than that, nearer to 50 but her hair looks dark so I may be being unfair to her.

I would suggest a date of early 1890s and guess her age to be in her 40s

I agree with Carol - early 1890s before the sleeve puffs got large.  Also think she might be in her early 40s. She doesn't seem to have many facial lines.

Looks similar to the kick-up sleeve of the early 90's but she's wearing a pigeon-breast blouse.
Early 1900's to around 1908.

My great grandmother was born 1851 and died in 1906 - wonder if it is her?

That would put her in her 50's when this was taken & she doesn't
look that old to me.

If the photo is 1890's  it would put her in her forties?
