Hotel labels are quite a story ...

 

According to Gaston Vuitton, in a publication made with the "Friends of the Old Papers", the hotelier's label is affixed by the bellhop on the luggage in order to create a system of communication with the bellhop of the next hotel.

 

More precisely, depending on the position of the label, it means, for example at the top left "generous customer", at the bottom upside down, it meant "customer new to travel" a whole hidden language. The customer, pleasant or not ... was spotted between bellboys :-)
