This gold bracelet belonged to the militant suffragette Edith How-Martyn. As a supporter of the Tax Resistance League, Edith refused to pay tax, resulting in the seizure of goods to the value of taxes owed. This bracelet was seized on several occasions when Edith refused to pay taxes. On each occasion, it was bought back in a public sale by a sympathetic fellow member of the TRL and returned to Edith, only to be seized again.
1900 AD - 1909 AD
