Sixth plate of album with 20 pochoir pattern plates, titled "Bouquets et Frondaisons" (Flowers and foliage), created by Émile-Allain Séguy and published in Paris by Charles Massin and in New York by Brentano's around 1925. The plate contains three ornamental designs, possibly for textiles or wallpapers, with lively, semi-abstract motifs inspired from nature. The first design is made up of vertical, undulating trunks, outlined with dark blue, colored with brown and light blue dashes, flanked with thin branches with stylized leaves and small, round fruits, colored with shades of blue, on a light orange ground. The second design is made up of a vertical strip of lozenges, colored with silver and outlined with double blue stripes outlined with dark blue lines, and semi-abstract butterflies executed with purple, white, and shades of orange and green, on a brown ground with light green stipples. The third design is made up of stylized fish, colored with two shades of orange, semi-abstract corals, colored with pastel green and outlined with blue, and bundles of semi-abstract algae, made up of undulating strips of shuttle motifs, colored with silver, on a purple ground.
