Winston Rufus toby produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, in a 2020 limited edition of 500. Widely considered one of the 20th century's most significant figures, Sir Winston Spencer Churchill (1874-1965) was a British statesman, soldier, and writer who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, during the Second World War, and again from 1951 to 1955. Apart from two years between 1922 and 1924, he was a Member of Parliament (MP) from 1900 to 1964 and represented a total of five constituencies. Ideologically an economic liberal and imperialist, he was for most of his career a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955. He was a member of the Liberal Party from 1904 to 1924. The jug is modeled by Ray Noble after the Winston Churchill toby jug produced by Leonard Jarvis in 1948. However, Churchill's beloved pet poodle Rufus was added to the jug sitting at Churchill's right side, transforming the Churchill Jarvis jug into a Churchill Rufus jug.
