The court also ordered Ionesco to hand over negatives of the pictures to her daughter Eva, a French actress who said she had suffered a "stolen childhood" because of the photographs.
But it rejected her demand for €200,00 ($263,000) in damages and for her mother to be barred from profiting from the photographs.
Ionesco was well-known in the 1970s for her erotic photographs, especially the controversial ones of her daughter, which appeared in a number of publications including European editions of magazines Playboy and Penthouse.
During the trial her lawyer argued the 1970s were a "more liberal and permissive" time and said Eva was pursuing a personal vendetta against her mother.
