Votes for Women” Rolling Pin

SOLD ON NOV 17, 2010 FOR: $6,871.25

Fantastic “Votes for Women” Rolling Pin. This novelty item may reasonably be considered a Holy Grail for women’s suffrage collectors. We are aware of only one other example in the hobby and none have previously been offered at auction. It is made out of wood, has one moveable handle, and an attached paper label that reads: “We have had the BIG STICK, Now let’s have the BIG ROLLING PIN; Roll out the opposition ROLL IN VOTES FOR WOMEN” It was made by Sleazby Brothers of Detroit and is in excellent condition.

More challenges to our efforts to celebrate the Centennial and Centennial Plus of women’s right to vote. We are committed to celebrating safely and ask you to join us in that effort. Outdoor events will continue as planned, but mask wearing may be requested if the tour groups are especially large. Slide shows will have limited seating to allow social distancing. Mask wearing is expected. Febb Burn Banquet will go on, but all those attending in person must be fully vaccinated. Masking will be necessary except when seated at your table or actively eating or drinking. We are diligently pursuing a virtual option for those who have not yet or cannot get vaccinated. Please check this site periodically as this policy may be updated as necessary.
