According to sales reports, the green ribbon decoration reached its peak in the years 1757 and 1758. She found favor with Madame de Pompadour, Madame Victoire, fourth daughter of Louis XV and was the favorite decoration for a large variety of pieces bought in the second half of 1757 by merchants-mercers such as Marc Sayde, Simon-Pierre-François Bailly, Jean-Jacques-Francois Machard and Lazare Duvaux. They bought sugar jars described as "green sugar jars Ribbons" at prices ranging from 72 to 108 pounds.
A replacement lid for a sugar bowl for the Chateau de la Muette in 1783 cost 36 pounds.(Ref: Geoffrey de Bellaigue - French porcelain in the collection of her Majesty the Queen)
