This is for a fine Antique 15ct gold Suffragette Chain link and ball bar brooch. A fabulous piece of social history. The motto of the Pankhurst movement was "Deeds not words", jewellery was very much of this concept, it spoke its own language and needed no words. The Suffragette chain link bar brooch was a piece of jewellery worn by women that had suffered imprisonment for their cause. Hence the ball and chain decoration, the symbol of incarceration.This style of brooch was used by the suffrage movement around c1909 when protests escalated and many women faced imprisonment as a result. There is a loop for the attachment of a safety chain if so desired. As shown in penultimate photograph. Also independently tested and verified as 15ct gold. Presented in excellent antique condition.
A wonderful opportunity to own a rich piece of antique social history. Please note that photographs have been significantly enlarged to highlight and show as much detail as possible. For actual measurements please refer to those given in the description.
