Offered by Highland Antiques for £695, the case was made by William Neale in Chester, 1908, and is engraved: Hurrah for Woman Suffrage.

Dealer Mike Wilson from the Aberdeen firm says: ‘Suffragette collectables are always sought after. They remind us of a very different period of our history when, after more than 50 years of campaigning, the Suffragette movement brought about a major change in the constitution.”
