Comments:
The central design of the silk bookmark is used in a number of bookmarks made by Stevens.

In addition, the stiff backing paper above has the same printing as bookmark sb1884, which itself has been identified as of Stevens manufacture.

As such there is little doubt that this bookmark was also of Stevens manufacture.
