"Votes for Women" cup and saucer from the The Preservation Society of Newport County
"Mrs. Alva Erksine Smith Vanderbilt Belmont (1853-1933) was first married to William K. Vanderbilt, grandson of Cornelius in 1875. At the time of her divorce, she came under the influence of Anna Howard Shaw, a noted suffragist and worked the rest of her life with the most militant groups of the suffrage movement. The Votes for Women motto was used in 1909 at the famous suffrage open house at Marble House, Newport Rhode Island.
This cup and saucer is a reproduction of the service used during that open house. The saucer measures 6 inches in diameter, and the cup and saucer are dishwasher and microwave safe."
The slogan also appears on other items available from the Newport Mansions Store.
Although Christmas 2015 has come and gone, we have unique gifts for history lovers all year-long in The History List Store, including signed books from noted authors and our original "History Nerd" shirts.
