    Woman's Suffrage: Alva Belmont Suffrage Dinnerware. A four piece place setting of Alva Vanderbilt Belmont's Suffrage dinnerware. Belmont commissioned the pattern, "Votes for Women" in blue script along the rims of white ground earthenware, from John Maddock & Son, England. In 1909, after forming the Political Equality League, Belmont held "Suffrage Dinners" at her Newport, Rhode Island estate, Marble Palace, to raise funds for the Suffrage movement. When the festivities were over, each guest was invited to take their "Votes for Women" place setting with them as a favor. This set includes a 9" dinner plate, a 7.75" soup bowl, a 6.25" bread and butter plate, and a coffee cup. The plates and bowl bear the John Maddock & Son hallmark. The dinner plate has mild, overall crazing with some subsequent moisture stains beneath, else the set is in very fine condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
