Stevengraphs and other Victorian silk pictures

£9.99

Product description

A valuable reference work on Stevengraphs, the Victorian trade name for a class of charming woven-silk picture. Victorian silk-work pictures were sold originally for a shilling but have for some time been 'collector's pieces' on both sides of the Atlantic. This book not only provides the interesting background to the introduction of these Victorian novelties and their subsequent marketing and development, but also gives valuable advice to both the established and the would-be collector, listing and illustrating all known subjects - pictorial and portrait. For the advanced collector, information about the different types of mount and printed back-label is published for the first time, and from these details the date of the silks can be ascertained. Although Thomas Stevens of Coventry made most of these silk pictures, several other manufacturers made similar articles. Information is given on these little-known competitors, including W.H.Grant. Contents: 1 General survey; 2 General advice and values; 3 Mounts and labels; 4 The scenic Stevengraphs; 5 Portrait Stevengraphs; 6 Stevens book-markers and other products; 7 Silks by other manufacturers. This is complete with dust jacket , which has been protected by a library cover, and is overall in very good condition.
