What is a piccote?

Peacocks and Piccotes
Another counted thread project.  I bought this chart when the Swans traveled to Williamsburg, VA.  What fun that was.  According to some knowledgeable person,  piccote is Old English for carnation.  That makes sense when you look at the piece.  I love it.  It is hanging in my TV room.  The framing was done at Art, Inc. in San Antonio, Texas.
