I am answering your question by private email as well as on my blog. I don’t know which Schafer and Vater piece you are talking about as they made many during the suffrage campaign, mostly anti. They are a German Company, but a good deal of the statuary issued during the suffrage period did come from that country and was imported to both England and America. At one time, these pieces attained some rather high prices on the auction market, but they have fallen significantly in value as of late. Depending on rarity, they generally sell today for around $400-$1,000. The most common piece is a racist image of an African Woman with a club that has mistakenly been identified with Sojourner Truth. It comes in two sizes. Most of the suffrage Schafer and Vater pieces are unmarked, but the style is unmistakable. If you send me a picture of what you have to the above email address that I just sent via private email, I can give you a better idea of its value. The African American piece sells for $400-500 in good condition with no chips or cracks.
Steve, One of these days I will have to pick your brain about suffrage in Australia. It is my understanding that the situation there was somewhat analogous to that in Canada, that women could vote in Federal Elections before they necessarily had the vote in all local elections. Wasn’t 1911 the date for the latter? There was a famous suffrage leader born in Bowden, South Australia who grew up in and around Adelaide named Muriel Matters. She went to England, joined the Women’s Freedom League, and made quite a name for herself. There is a Muriel Matters Society in your country that has about 300 members. I received a nice letter from the Society’s general secretary, Frances Bedford, who, coincidentally, is an MP representing the district called Florey! You never told me about this!

Thank you so much for your outstanding book on American Woman Suffrage Postcards. The clean presentation of the crisp and colorful cards with supporting narrative fascinates me. The researched writing is welcoming. We are fortunate you have assembled these historical gems and chosen to share them with us all.

You address one of my favorite views of any historical movement by including how “mock” cards were used to ridicule suffragists. That makes me wonder what future generations will think of our behavior today!
Thanks again for your dedicated and exemplary service.
Women's Suffrage Movement in The Bahamas - New York essay
Your description does not strike a bell with me, and I am not familiar with the piece that you describe. In answer to your question, purple, green and white in England were only the official colors of Emmeline Pankhurst’s Women’s Social and Political Union. Numerous other organizations also had their own official colors, the most prominent being the red, green, and white of the National Union of Suffrage Societies. Offhand, I do not recall any major organization using red and black, and I suspect that these were simply added on by the owner as decorative enhancement. Whether this tambourine was an actual suffrage piece or put together later, I could not tell you. Is the wording “Votes for Women” printed or hand done?
