Stevengraph (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 the 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.
