The rosette is covered with two lovely labels. One of them is printed with an "indienne" motif paper, a re-edition of a fabric once printed at the Jouy Oberkampf Manufactory. The motif has been named Coquecigrues, a cotton fabric printed around 1790-1800.
People automatically think about the printed red characters when evoking Toile de Jouy. However, the production at the manufactory was infinitely richer than that: the floral and geometric motifs printed at Jouy are estimated at over 30 000, whereas the character prints only number around 200 motifs.
