Embroidery pattern in Smyrna stitch
Journal des Demoiselles, 1, Boulevart des Italiens
Single sheet, pattern with raised paper to indicate that the stitches used should be a star stitch occupying a 3x3 block, elsewhere described as Leviathan work or Smyrna stitch. The chart shows a 3x3 block for each stitch. The original pattern has holes punched in it, possibly to ensure the colors would not overlap.
