Description

Miniature telescope, made of brass-like metal with a black leather sheath. Stanhopes were novelty souvenirs popular during the 19th century. The image can be seen by holding it up to the light and looking into the tiny hole.

British suffragist, Mary Clarke, was an organizer of the Women's Social and Political Union and younger sister of its founder, Emmeline Pankhurst.

The Lewis collection includes Susan B. Anthony, Mary Clarke, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Sylvia Pankhurst. Stanhopes were also created for Lucy Stone, Carrie Chapman Catt, and Anna Howard Shaw.
