Possession of a lady it said in the auction listing

That term always intrigues me. Who is she? Why is she selling the item? Was it a gift from her godmother, a lover, a child? Is she English, French, Venetian?
 And if she was of the 18th century then I am hooked. Why I don't know. Perhaps it's such a different world to mine, perhaps it's the fashions, the shoes, the contrasts. Perhaps it was reading too many romances as a girl. Perhaps I am just a rococco soul.
 The is a work in progress, an experiment. A plaything. Like the playthings of the rich of the 18th century.
