Bare-knuckled brawlers battle for supremacy with this circa 1880s Thomas Stevens Boxing Silks complete set of (4) Stevengraphs. This eye-catching gallery from the Coventry, England manufacturer ranges from roughly 5 to 5-1/4" by 7 to 7-1/4" and features intricately crafted silk woven images embedded in a sturdy cardboard mount. Each pugilist is identified in bold lettering and further profiled through a lengthy biography on the reverse. Included among these Heavyweights are Kilrain (slight tearing to mount), C. Mitchell (pin hole, extensive creasing to mount), J. Smith (pin hole, reverse writing) and Sullivan (pin hole). The mounts display varying degrees of age-induced wear while the interior silks are absent of any obtrusive detractors.
