8.5" Luncheon Plate, Votes for Women


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 luncheon plate is a reproduction of the service used during that open house. The plate measures 8.5 inches in diameter, and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
