German term or phrase: Statussymbol
J'ai l'habitude de traduire "Statussymbol" par "signe extérieur de richesse" mais je trouve que le terme de convient pas dans ce contexte hustorique (18e)

Voici la phrase : "Schließlich ist die geschmackvolle Toilettegarnitur ein wichtiges Statussymbol adeliger Damen, vergleichbar dem versammelten Prunkgeschirr auf der Fürstentafel"

Pour l'instant j'ai

"la garniture de toilette constitue un symbole important du standing des dames de la noblesse..." mais je ne suis pas 100% satisfaite...
Une idée ?

Explanation:
Bonjour,

Je traduirais "Statussymbol" par "indice révélateur", ce qui donnerait : "la garniture de toilette constitue un symbole important du niveau de vie des dames de la noblesse".
