Comments:
by Sprake:
Large size black and white picture. Title woven in lower right corner. Stevens' identification printed on front. No back label. 

by Godden:
This fine landscape view of Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire, near Coventry, was made in two sizes - approximately 13 1/4inches by 7 1/2inches (above) and 6 3/4inches by 2 3/4inches, the smaller version (st372 on this site) being much the rarer one.
Both were made only in the twentieth century, with other views such as the Coventry scene (st100), and have the late credit 'Woven in silk by T. Stevens (Coventry) Ltd.' appearing printed on the untitled card-mount. The title is, however, woven into the picture in the bottom right-hand corner. Many of these silks were originally issued in calendar form.

Other comments:
This view of Kenilworth Castle, and that of Coventry were the two largest silk pictures made by Stevens, and are significantly larger than all the other pictures.
There are two versions of Kenilworth Castle. This larger version above displays only the ruins and the bridge leading to them.
The smaller version (st372) includes more of the general scenery to the left of the ruins and a tree to the right.
