Framed WEDGWOOD PORTRAIT MEDALION of Winston Churchill


By: (Modeled by Arnold Machin)

Thomas Goode & Co. 13×10×2 [London]

4 1/2 x 6 inches

Item Number: 11786


This marvelous Wedgwood portrait medallion was commissioned in 1964 by fine china purveyor Thomas Goode & Co. of South Audley Street, London, to mark Churchill’s 90th Birthday and his Honorary Citizenship of the United States award. It came to be regarded as a memorial tribute after Churchill died within two months of its issue. It is far rarer than the subsequent 1974 issue, which commemorated Churchill’s 100th Birthday.

This example is in very good condition, as issued (4 1/2 x 6 inches), mounted on black velvet and elegantly framed in a gilded frame, open-faced and unglazed (6 x 8 inches overall). The velvet is a touch rubbed, the frame has some very faint chips along the edges. Else fine.
