For´s got to be 1, but for an all round action countess 2

Rob said...

I also voted for #1. It is proper enough to fit the period of 1899/1900 without looking overly modern, yet still having allure.

I agree with the gentlemen.No 1 every inch a countess

Ross Mac said...

No 1 is well enough in a drawing room or Durbar, No 2 is too English looking for my taste but No 3 is just right for negotiating the Afghan passes on horseback.

I voted #2 for the all action heroine but #3 looks good as well; I thought #1 was impressive but a bit staid

#1 does have the style, #3 left has the correct gear for traversing the wilds of central Asia. #2 and her sisters look like they could beat up most takers.

Michael Mathews said...

I voted for #3 because she looked to come from an Indiana Jones movie. #1 is proper for certain occasions like the interrogation episode. #2 just didn't feel right for Khyber Pass, more for a Mummy movie.

I would vote for #3. It looks more Russian than #2, which looks like an English explorer.

I also feel #3 has the right look for the location.

Thank you everyone,
for participating in the poll and your remarks here, on TMP or even in person. I had fun with this and it offered a nice intermission before....

Pardon me I see black smoke heading up river. I need to check it out.

Missed the poll but I agree, #1 is the best and every inch a Russian Countess.
