Comments:
It is unfortunately not known what is woven on the reverse of this bookmark. There is however recorded a second " GFS " bookmark, and that version is still attached to the stiff backing paper, which has the STEVENS logo printed at the top.

Note: " GFS " are the initials for " GIRLS FRIENDLY SOCIETY ". According to their web site {GirlsFriendlySociety.org.uk), The Girls Friendly Society was officially established in England on 1st January 1875 by Mary Elizabeth Townsend, an Irish clergyman's daughter married to the wealthy Frederick Townsend.
