Description....:
Suffragette badge / ribbon, made of paper and with the expected cheddar yellow color, in an unusual form that I have not regularly encountered with a swallowtail format. Printed in black, with a rounded corner, double border, the text reads simply: "Votes for Women". Note the interesting letter "M" and the tall centerpoint of its valley, surprisingly different than the "W." Badges like this could be worn on the lapel or utilized in any sort of manner to adorn hats and clothing.

American suffrage items were generally yellow in this shade, with black text, though there was a myriad of organizations and some distinguished themselves through the use of different colors.

Mounting: This is a pressure mount between 100% cotton twill, black in color, and UV protective acrylic. The background fabric has been washed and treated to reduce and set the dye. The black-painted and hand-gilded molding is Italian.
