Definition
a deceptive outward appearance

or more rarely:

any outward appearance — especially one that is new or clever
  • I passed it as negligently as I did the pollard willow opposite to it: I had no presentiment of what it would be to me; no inward warning that the arbitress of my life — my genius for good or evil — waited there in humble guise.
