Seventeenth 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 three designs, presented inside three overlapping oval frames, with semi-abstract motifs inspired from nature, executed with lively colors. The first design consists of a black roundel containing three semi-abstract roses, executed with pink, red, and purple, and leaves, colored with two shades of green, on a brown ground. The second design consists of a white and purple oval containing a scrolling, brown branch with stylized elaves, colored with green, red, and brown, and bundles of semi-abstract grapes, colored with black, and outlined with brown, some flanked with small, red leaves, on a purple ground. The third design is made up of a bluish-green oval with a bundle of semi-abstract roses, executed with red and shades of purple, and outlined with green, on a brown ground.
