Description:
TRIANGULAR FELT WOMEN'S SUFFRAGETTE PENNANT WITH APPLIED LETTERS, CA 1910-1920:

Triangular, felt, suffragette pennant with appliqued letters that read: "Votes for Women". Violet and yellow were the customary colors of the suffrage movement in America, though red, white and blue objects are also seen. Violet and green were the colors of the women's movement in England. Large suffragette banners are particularly scarce and sought-after.

Mounting: The textile has been hand-stitched to a background 100% cotton, black in color, which was washed to reduce excess dye. An acid-free agent was added to the wash to further set the dye, which was heat-treated for the same purpose. The mount was then placed in a black-painted, hand-gilded and distressed Italian molding. The glazing is U.V. protective acrylic.

Condition: There is moderate staining throughout. The great scarcity of suffrage textiles well-warrants the condition.
