Capo di Monte, Churchill Centenary Figurine, 1974: Figure Modeled by Bruno Merli

Posted on Dec 11, 2011

A very detailed and superbly modeled figurine (figure) of Churchill seated in an armchair by the Italian factory of Capo di Monte, Florence.

This figurine (figure) was modeled by Bruno Merli and is actually quite large and heavy. It stands 11″ tall.

The example shown here is in first class condition with no chips or scrapes. It is quite scarce but they do come on the market occasionally.

Value: $3,000

Two great reference books I use to research Churchilliana:
Churchill Images of Greatness by Ronald A. Smith. (page 186)
The Book of Churchilliana by Douglas Hall. (page 70)
