Woman Suffrage Tea Towel

An OHS Museum Store Exclusive Product

In honor of our original exhibition Nevertheless, They Persisted: Women’s Voting Rights and the 19th Amendment, the OHS Museum Store, in partnership with Allport Editions, has designed a custom tea towel that is available for purchase online! The design features a vintage sign that reads “A Woman Living Here Has Registered to Vote.” According to the National Museum of American History, which holds this sign in its collection (2011.0230.01), it was designed to be placed in the window of a home so that all who passed would know that the woman within had exercised her right under the 19th Amendment and registered to vote. All proceeds from online sales benefit the Oregon Historical Society.

Allport Editions began in Ardys Allport's garage in 1982. She published prints from original artwork displayed in her gallery as a means of generating additional income for the artists she worked with — the prints providing them revenue between sales of original pieces. Art prints led to greeting cards, cards led to kitchen towels, and today Allport continues to evolve while continually publishing the artwork of artists near and far. Nearly 40 years later, Allport is still woman-owned and operated, and manufactures its products its hometown of Portland, Oregon. The OHS Museum Store is proud to partner with this local business, selling a wide range of popular Allport greeting cards.
