Description

Suffragette interest, a silver brooch assayed for Chester 1896 depicting a bicycle above a horn, 31mm long, The American civil rights leader, Susan B Anthony, wrote in 1896: "I think [the bicycle] has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world. I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammelled womanhood."
