    Woman's Suffrage: Nine English Comic Postcards. This lot contains some nice original artwork. There is a water color postcard labeled "suffragette," which was signed by Carles. Another is an unsigned French painting of an English card. The original is included for comparison. There is also a postcard decorated with a postage stamp montage in the shape of a suffragette. Her bag, shoes, and hat are hand painted in the official colors of the WSPU. Because of its graphics and subject matter, the North Pole postcard is very rare. The "Christabear" postcard is a parody on the name "Christabel," the infamous militant daughter of the founder of the WSPU, Emmeline Pankhurst. The pavement artist, stuffed animal dog "Votes for Women," and the comic photo would all be nice additions to any collection. Each example measures 3.5" x 5.5" and is in very very fine condition.
