Comments:
From the image below of a set of identical ribbons, it is known these were made by Stevens, even though the individual ribbons do not have a signature.
 
Stevens advertisements record that he sold these narrow bible bookmarks with pointed ends (as above); tasselled ends; or with ivory or gilt ornaments. They were sold in various combinations; the buyer choosing which ribbons, and how many, from:
Collect - sb540
Communion - sb552
Lesson I - image above
Lesson II - sb1168
Litany - sb1180
Prayers - sb1592
Psalms - sb1616

The silk markers are joined at the top by a small carved ivory toggle that is just 2.0cm wide.

A set of three designs, Collect, Holy Communion and Psalms was registered on 17 July 1862 (No. 153243). Note however that there is no record to date of " Holy Communion " with a pointed end (only frayed), so this registration probably applies to the Stevens Tassled End series.

Below is an image of a similar set of ribbons still attached to the original stiff paper used to post them, and with the Stevens logo clearly shown.
