This hand-colored original cartoon, dated December 19, 1951, from Punch magazine depicts Churchill, Truman and Stalin around a holiday table toasting a female figure (of War, presumably) who has laid down her sword (scepter?) for the moment. A female figure of Peace sits pensively in a sidechair close by.

The cartoon (8 x 10 inches) is matted and superbly framed in a hand-stenciled, gilt-edged, wood frame (13 x 16 inches overall).
