WOVEN IN THE YORK
EXHIBITION 1879.

 
 

Size:

Of cushion: 9.0cm high by 7.0cm wide, by about 2.5cm thick

Comments:
The actual woven silk ribbon is loosely sewn onto a cushion to form a pin cushion, although this was probably not what Stevens intended.
There is no name of the weaver on this item, although as the woven rose is identical to the image used on the Stevens' bookmark, sb1996 - The Last Rose of Summer, this silk is almost certainly of Stevens manufacture.
