    Woman's Suffrage: Silk Equal Suffrage Association Banner From Chicago, Il. Stunning 35" x 52 suffrage banner originally from the estate of Mrs. Bertha Baur a prominent citizen of Chicago, Il. She was also a civic leader, feminist, Republican Party powerhouse and a dedicated Suffragette. She passed away in 1967, living into her nineties. This banner likely held a place of honor in her home. The banner itself has the seal of the city of Chicago and in the center and reads, "The Chicago Equal Suffrage Association." The piece retains what looks to be the original pole for hanging. Being made of silk, it does have some typical separations at the top and bottom, but overall in fine condition. This piece would certainly be the centerpiece in any suffrage collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
