This antique silk bookmark has a portrait of President Abraham Lincoln and a quote from the Emancipation Proclamation. It was not made by T. Stevens, but this type of woven silk is commonly called a Stevengraph. In addition the bookmark has a banner with the words E Pluribus Unum, a large American flag and an American Eagle and Shield. The Eagle trade mark belongs to B.B. Tilt & Son, N.Y. & Patterson, N.J.
