Stevengraph, Silk Picture, "Called to the Rescue," Victorian
Here is the other Stevengraph which I bought, entitled "Called to the Rescue." It is circa 1880, and in excellent condition. As I have previously stated, Thomas Steven was credited with saving the silk weaving industry of Coventry. This piece is in the original frame, with the creator's label on the back. Under the picture, at the top of the mat, are the words "Woven in pure silk by Thomas Stevens, Stevengraph Works, Coventry." Framed this piece measures 8 and 3/4 inches East to West, and 5 and 3/4 inches North to South.
