Vintage Winston Churchill Pitcher

| /

Handsome illustrated jug produced in England by Copeland/Spode circa 1941, under wartime restrictions. One side of the pitcher features a cameo of Churchill with a warship to his left, a tank to his right, and a fighter aircraft above him. In an arc above the aircraft slightly misquoted is a line from Churchill's 1940 speech: "ALL I CAN OFFER IS BLOOD, TOIL, TEARS, AND SWEAT." Below Churchill's image is a ribbon bearing his quote: "NEVER IN THE FIELD OF HUMAN CONFLICT WAS SO MUCH OWED BY SO MANY TO SO FEW".

The other side shows a bulldog on a Union Flag bestriding a globe with the British Empire shown in dark color. Over and under the design is the February 1941 exchange of quotes between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill. In a ribbon below the globe, Roosevelt quotes Longfellow: "SAIL ON, O SHIP OF STATE! | SAIL ON O UNION STRONG AND GREAT | HUMANITY WITH ALL ITS FEARS | WITH ALL THE HOPES OF FUTURE YEARS | IS HANGING BREATHLESS ON THY FATE!" Churchill's reply appears above and to the left of the globe: "GIVE US THE TOOLS. | AND WE WILL FINISH THE JOB!"

This particular example is the one for the U.S.A. market, approximately 6.5 inches tall with a 4 inch diameter opening. Excellent condition with no chips or marks.
