Eighteenth 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 with semi-abstract motifs inspired from nature, executed with lively colors. The first design is made up of a large, stylized flower, executed with shades of purple and red, flanked by semi-abstract leaves, outlined with brown and colored with green, with offsetting black thorns, on a brown ground. The second design consists of a thin, vertical garland made up of bundles of three semi-abstract flowers, colored with shades of purple, separated by undulating branches flanked by small leaves, colored with purple, and gramed by thin, interlacing ribbons that form bows with hanging tassels under the bundles of flowers, colored with blue and purple, on an orange ground. The third design is made up of interlacing branches with small leaves, colored with green, and large, alternating, semi-abstract flowers, colored with purple and brown, flanked by two large, semi-abstract brown leaves.
