Antique Suffrage Suffragette Rare Dutch Postcard 1911 Zeeland Votes For Women For Sale
Rare Dutch Card, ca. 1910
This listing is for a very rare
original antique suffragette postcard. It shows a group of Dutch
provincial suffragettes, wearing the traditional Dutch dress for the
area of Walcheren which is an island in the Dutch province of Zeeland
(in the early 1900's all women there still wore this type of
traditional costume). The women in the photo are known and their names
are (left to right): Willemina Louws-Lous, E. Schoe-Boogaard, M.
Meijer-Provoost and, in the doorway, Johanna (Jewantje) van den Driest.
The text on this card (printed in the right top hand corner) is Dutch
and translates as "Campaigners for Votes for Women from the Island of
Walcheren". This card was printed and published locally and was also
used locally (postmarked march 1911, the text on the card is in Dutch
and makes no reference to the subject of suffrage). There is some wear
as you can see in the close-up pictures: soft corners, a pin prick and
rub/disturbance on the left middle edge. But in all this card is in
good condition, and a very rare find indeed. This card was reproduced
as a limited edition in the 1970's by a museum in Zeeland (clearly
marked as such and just in black & white) and also this card has
been shown in several books on the history of the province of Zeeland
and the Dutch suffrage movement, but it is extremely rare to find one.
