SHARE CHURCHILL JUG RUNNETH OVER

A rare jug modeled after Winston Churchill, which the World War II leader disliked so much that production was stopped, sold for $26,400 at auction, Sotheby's says. London dealer Tom Power bought the 7 1/2-inch-tall jug of Churchill's head against competing bids from the United States and Canada telephoned to the sale room in Chester, England. Christopher Proudlove, the auction house spokesman, said only three of the jugs are known to exist.
