The head dress looks to me to be the precursor of the later flitterhaube.   To be completely honest, I'm not sure whether this lady best exemplifies general "Bavarian" or "Nurnberg" - so I'll err on the side of calling her just Bavarian.  Her dress is clearly a later style, with close-cut sleeves and a goldworked brustfleck that will come to typify the style as we get into the later decades of the 16th century

Judith with the Head of Holofernes by Lucas Cranach the Elder, 1530. Very interesting piece, you normally don't see Judith posing with the head. This would have been considered a very brazen, rude image. Completely different from what Italy was doing at the time.
