This seems to be the same dress, but in the first picture, there is a pale blue insert on the bodice using (apparently) the same material as the skirt & cuffs. The Costume Gallery of the Pitti Palace in Florence says this is a wedding dress made in Naples between 1876 & 1878 (photo: Marcello Bertoni). The picture on the bottom was taken by a tourist, Joseph Hilsey, for his blog, Material World, and is described as "Yellow and cream striped silk over pale blue underskirt, ca. 1878."

Dress, circa 1880s: dark brown taffeta, cream silk damask, lace, and silk. Chester County (PA) Historical Society: “This dress is an example of over-the-top embellishment. It features silk chenille fringe, bows, lace, swags, ruffles and pleated scallops. There is even asymmetrical lacing up one side. What is even more astounding than the level of decoration is the size of the waist which measures merely 17.5" around.
