Unglazed utility ware porcelain. Said to be based on a wartime newspaper strip cartoon ‘Our Gang’, in which Churchill headed a cast of characters, subsequently produced as ceramic figures by the Bovey Pottery, Devon. The figures were
the result of a collaboration between sculptor Gwynneth Cobden Holt (1909-1995) and architect and historian Fenton Wyness (1903-1974) who became a consultant for the Bovey Pottery in 1940.

The cast of characters eventually extended to eighteen, comprising Churchill - The Boss, Roosevelt, Stalin, Hitler,Mussolini, Aussie, Nurse, Warden, Land Girl, Fireman, WAAF, New Zealander, Private, Highlander, Sergeant, Pilot, Captain, Sailor and Major.
