ARTHUR & GEORGIE GASKIN

Arts & Crafts Suffragette Necklace

Silver, enamel, amethysts

Origin British, 1910

The design for the necklace is documented as (9E686-1969) in The Victoria & Albert Museum Picture Library.
"The drawing is annotated 'London, 1910'. This suggests it may have been exhibited in the Arts & Crafts Society exhibition that year, the last to be held in the New Gallery in Regent Street, but reports in The Studio do not refer to it. It could equally have been made as a presentation piece for a leading suffragette in that year. Only a suffragette would have dared to wear such a bold piece in the distinctive colours of the WSPU in 1910". Elizabeth S. Goring, Suffragette Jewellery in Britain, Journal 26, 2002 of The Decorative Arts Society 1850 to the Present. Illustrated p. 96, fig. 25.
