Pankhurst, Emmeline.
Reproduction Suffragette Medal: Emmeline Pankhurst's Holloway Medal
(Portrayer Publishers, 2015). Beautiful suffragette replica medal, a faithful reproduction of the original one awarded to Emmeline Pankhurst after her imprisonment in Holloway prison in 1908. She was charged together with her daughter Christabel Pankhurst, and Flora Drummond (fellow members of the Women's Social and Political Union), with inciting a rush on the House of Commons. The verdict was guilty, and because they refused to pay a fine, they were sent to Holloway Gaol. The date engraved on the front (obverse) of the medal is 8 October 1908 (on a bar at the top), and this is the date of the incident which led to Mrs Pankhurst's imprisonment. The word "Holloway" appears on the bar at the top, and on the medallion itself: "H.2 4", which signifies (Hospital block, 2nd floor, cell 4). On the reverse of the medallion, the words 'Mrs Pankhurst' are engraved, surrounded by a laurel wreath. These details are all true to the original medal of the suffragette era. Materials: Grosgrain ribbon in the famous suffragette colours of purple, white and green (vertical strips). Skin-safe, environmentally-friendly nickel with antique-effect silver plating for an authentic "aged-look". With a safe, secure pin-clasp at the rear. Presented with a free purple velvet gift-pouch which is in turn displayed within an attractive zip-lock gift-bag, clear at the front and shiny silver at the rear. Dimensions: Medallion: 20mm diameter. Bars: 20mm X 5mm. Ribbon length: 75mm. Total medal length: 110mm. Excellent condition, brand new. pp. Order No. NSBK-C15429
