Ref ND2    Brooch in the Suffragette Colours

18 carat gold brooch in the Suffragette colours circa 1910, set with an amethyst surrounded by natural pearls and green enamel detail. In Britain 'Suffragette' jewellery was made in the years immediately preceding the outbreak of World War 1. The colours were a brand image for the WSPU, devised by Mrs Pethick Lawrence, who described them in the 1908 issue of Votes for Women : Purple is the royal colour ...  It stands for the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette ... white stands for purity ... green is the colour of hope and the emblem of spring. The brooch is 1.5 inches long and 2/3 of an inch wide at centre. In a fitted case and immaculate.
