The Stevens presentation book of unmounted silks in the Coventry Museum includes two silks depicting views in Paris:
a: An upright view of the Eiffel Tower, with the woven title SHA. MAISON DU PHENIX SHA [st524 on this site].
b: A landscape silk view of Paris with the Bon Marche building prominently placed in the foreground. This silk has the woven title PARIS-MAGASINS DU BON MARCHE (above).
Both these silks show the Eiffel Tower, built in 1889.

Other comments:
As can be seen, this is an image of a loose silk. It has not been seen mounted, and as such it is attributed to STEVENS only because it is included in the Stevens Album
