Benjamin Disraeli toby jug - Masons circa 1975

Benjamin Disraeli prototype toby jug produced by Masons of Hanley, England, circa 1975. Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, (1804-1881) was a British statesman, Conservative politician and writer who twice served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He played a central role in the creation of the modern Conservative Party, defining its policies and its broad outreach. Disraeli is remembered for his influential voice in world affairs, his political battles with the Liberal Party leader William Ewart Gladstone, and his one-nation conservatism or "Tory democracy". He made the Conservatives the party most identified with the British Empire and military action to expand it, both of which were popular among British voters. He is the only British Prime Minister to have been born Jewish. A top hat and cane form the handle of the jug. This is one of ten known prototype toby jugs produced by Masons in the mid 1970s but never put into production.
