Catalog OfStevengraph (Woven In Silk) Post Cards

Thomas Stevens of Coventry England was the inventor and manufacturer of “Stevengraphs” small pictures that are woven out of pure silk. Silk pictures are machine made scenes that were a popular novelty in the late Victorian era. Generally, these are small and crammed with minute detail.

Silk postcards were first introduced in 1902. These postcards have the address and message side printed in a conventional manner. The scenic side has a small Stevens woven silk picture, surrounded by a pressed, relief patterned border design. The cards that depict famous passenger liners were sold aboard these vessels.  Stevens postcards are now rare.

Please order by Item Number.  Items are ordered first by (steamship line) then by ship name.  All items are in Very Good Condition, or better unless otherwise noted.  Please list alternate choices on your order when possible.
