Third plate of album with 20 pochoir pattern plates with designs for textiles and carpets, titled "Suggestions pour étoffes et tapis: 60 motifs en couleur" (Suggestions for stuffs and carpets: 60 color motifs), created by E.A. Séguy and published in Paris by Massin & Cie in 1923. The plate contains two designs with semi-abstract motifs inspired from nature, executed with lively colors. The first design is made up of bundles of semi-abstract flowers, colored with pink, orange, and white, and leaves, colored with black and green, on an orange ground. The second design is made up of thin, interlacing branches with semi-abstract leaves, colored with green and blue, and semi-abstract cocoons (?), colored with black and outlined with purple, on a white ground with scattered abstract spots colored with black and filled with blue stipples, or inversely, and smaller, blue spots, some with two black eyes.
