Churchill Portrait by Chandor Box
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force on 1st April 2018, Halcyon Days has crafted by hand this handsome enamel box featuring a hand painted reproduction of Douglas Granville Chandor's 1946 portrait of Sir Winston Churchill in RAF uniform.
Churchill was an Honorary Air Commodore of the RAF and captured the bravery of RAF pilots in his 1940 speech, "Never in the history of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." A magnificent example of British craftsmanship, this enamel box is worthy of the two icons it celebrates, the Royal Air Force and Sir Winston Churchill.
The original artwork can be found in the National Portrait Gallery, London.
