Silver chain-necklace commemorating the imprisonment of the suffragette Kitty Marshall, also known as Emily Katherine Marshall.
The chain has three silver medallions each commemorating a different period of imprisonment. The medallions are engraved both sides, on one side with Kitty's name and the period of imprisonment, on the reverse with the cell and wing number occupied by Kitty during her terms in Holloway.
Kitty served her first sentence in Holloway for suffragette militancy in November 1910 after throwing a potato at the fanlight window over the front door of the Home Secretary, Winston Churchill. The following year she spent 10 days in prison for her part in a deputation to the House of Commons, and in 1912 was sent to Holloway with over 200 other suffragettes for taking part in the window-smashing campaign.
