Bronze BUST of Winston Churchill


Number 16 of 150

By: Lawrence Ludtke

(10 1/2 inches tall; 14 1/4 inches overall. 10 pounds)

Item Number: 205660


A fine likeness of Winston Churchill, handsomely produced, set on a green marble slab atop a wood base with a black label lettered in gold, framing the Churchill rampant lion crest: “The Right Honorable Sir Winston S. Churchill Statesman.”

The bust was commissioned by Dallas book dealer Richard Hazlett, then-co-director of the International Churchill Society North Texas Chapter, in 1993 in a limited edition of 150, partly as a fund raiser for the Society. The sculptor was Lawrence Ludtke.

The bust weighs a very substantial 10 pounds and is 10 1/2 inches tall (14 1/4 inches tall overall, with the base). It is numbered: “16/150,” dated “1942,” and signed “Ludtke” in the bronze surface. Splendid.
