China sugar bowl with the 'angel of freedom' logo designed by Sylvia Pankhurst in the suffragette tricolour of purple, white and green. 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. Part of a 13-piece tea service specially made for the Women's Exhibition held at Princes Skating Rink in 1909. As well as being used in the refreshment room of the exhibition the sugar bowl and other items in the tea service were sold, either as individual pieces or as a whole set to raise funds for the WSPU.
