by Austin Sprake:
Mannion is credited as one of Stevens' agents in the U.S.A. and it seems clear that some of Stevens's silks were being sold under Mannion's name. "The Finish" has been seen with similar Mannion identification.
by Geoffrey Godden:
I have seen a copy of the woven silk above presented as a bookmark (recorded on this site as sb491) still attached to the stiff backing paper. On that paper was printed:
WOVEN IN PURE SILK
STEVENGRAPH MFG. CO.
J. J. MANNION & CO. Sole Proprietor
Taken at face value, this printing would confirm that Stevens was in fact the weaver.
