    Suffrage "Freedom" Cup and Saucer Designed by Sylvia Pankhurst. In 1908 Sylvia Pankhurst, militant Suffragette, designed the Suffragette tea set which was illustrated by an angel, standing tiptoe and blowing on a curved trumpet. Behind her is a banner with the word "Freedom." In the background are prison bars and the letters "WSPU" (for Women's Social and Political Union, the Suffrage organization started by her mother Emmeline) with an encircling decoration of flowers, leaves and chains. The china was produced by Longston pottery and brought to America when Mrs. Pankhurst lectured for the Suffrage cause of women. This is a rare opportunity to own this item. Cup 2 1/2" high, saucer diameter 5".
