Comments:
A member of the Stevengraph Collectors Association has this bookmark, and reports that his version is still attached to the stiff backing paper, on which is written " Woven in pure silk by Stevengraph Mfg. Co. J.J. Mannion & Co. Sole Props., Cincinatti, Ohio. " There can hence be no doubt this ribbon is of Stevens manufacture.

This campaign ribbon was on behalf of the Republican challengers, Benjamin Harrison (for President) and Levi P Morton (as Vice President). They were successful, against the incumbant Democrat President Cleveland & Thurman.

It is believed that Stevens also produced the campaign ribbon for Cleveland & Thurman, and this is recorded as sb1548.
