Definition german
Soviel wie Vignette. Die reichen, friesartigen Verzierungen über den Kapitelüberschriften im Rokokobuch heißen Fleurons oder Kopfvignetten. Häufiger wird die Bezeichnung allerdings für die kleinen ornamentalen Zierstempel auf Bucheinbänden, besonders für die in den Ecken angebrachten, verwendet.
