This china teapot, cup and saucer feature the 'angel of freedom' logo designed by Sylvia Pankhurst. The motif incorporates the initials of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) and a winged angel with 'Freedom' written on a banner above her head. During the Votes for the Women campaign, the WSPU commissioned an array of merchandise to promote its cause and raise funds for the movement. These items form part of a 13-piece tea service specially made for use and sale at the Women's Exhibition held at Princes Skating Rink in 1909.
