He holds a glove and walking stick in one hand and has a customary cigar between his lips. He is well detailed with a wonderful facial expression and is naturalistically hand painted. The jug is numbered 8360A and has printed black makers marks to the base and is titled WINSTON CHURCHILL PRIME MINISTER OF GREAT BRITAIN and dated 1940.
