Comments:

by Godden:
Issued in October 1903. These silks were initially advertised and issued by Messrs. R. T. Morgan & Co., rather than by Stevens. 

There are two different embossed borders shown above. The " normal " embossed version invariably has the printed title in the centre of the card, whilst the " scalloped " border version invariably has the title printed to the left.
 
In both versions too, the Stevens credit is printed on the card. This is not always the case, with most cards having no printed credit at all.
