This tea towel is illustrated with the menu of twelve terrines served at the King’s dinner on 8 February 1747. They were taken from the menu gathered together in the “Voyages du Roi au château de Choisy, avec les logements de la cour et les menus de la table de Sa Majesté – Année 1747” by Brain de Sainte-Marie.
Depending on the period, the supper was served at 10 pm in the King’s anteroom. The King’s armchair was placed before a set table. The guests sat on folding chairs to the sides of the table. The duchesses were the only people allowed to sit in the first row. All the other courtesans had to remain standing, behind them.
