Comments:
by Austin Sprake:
Smaller version than (STG125. Colours black and white with blue sky and green bushes.

by Geoffrey 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 [see st368 on this site] and 6 3/4inches by 2 3/4inches, the smaller version (above) 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.

Other comments:
Unlike the larger version of this silk, there is no title woven on the silk.

The larger version (st368) displays only the ruins and the bridge leading to them.
This smaller version includes more of the general scenery to the left of the ruins and a tree to the right.

The Stevengraph silk above was also used in the 1934 calendar
