2020 marks the 100th year since some women were granted the right to vote nationally across the USA, and Alison’s Suffragette collection is a celebration of their campaign for women’s right to vote. After many years of picketing, conventions, and strikes, the pressure from the Suffragettes eventually resulted in the 19th Amendment being added to the U.S. Constitution, stating that "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."
On this design, women hold signs bearing the iconic purple and yellow colors of the movement, with one grappling with a policeman and another asking what the President will do for woman suffrage.

This hand-crafted fine bone china cup started its journey in the potteries of Stoke-on-Trent, England, one of Great Britain’s last remaining craft industries, using traditional methods which have remained unchanged for generations. Fine bone china is translucent, pure white in colour and is stronger and more chip-resistant than earthenware china. It has been made in Stoke-on-Trent since the 1790’s by famous pottery houses such as Spode, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, and Duchess China. Each ceramic mug takes 7 days to make; it is cast in a mould and is finished by hand by highly skilled glazers and lithographers.
Bone china has a long history in the English countryside and lends itself as the perfect canvas to Alison’s illustrations, ensuring rich and beautiful colours on every cup. The delicate and smooth characteristics of bone china is even said to improve the taste of your favorite tea or coffee.
