Jock VI of Chartwell

Commemorating the life of Sir Winston Churchill, 1874 - 1965

Limited edition of 750
Designed by Jane James
Exclusively commissioned by Goviers of Sidmouth

On Winston Churchill's 88th birthday, his private secretary, Sir John Rupert 'Jock' Colville, gave him a ginger and white cat, who was also named 'Jock'. In the final three years of his life, Jock was his constant companion, and he was reputedly at his master's bedside when he died on the 24th January 1965.

Churchill had requested that the National Trust, who were due to take control of his house at Chartwell in Kent after his death, should always keep a ginger cat with a white bib and four white socks, in his memory.

In March of this year, Jock V retired and Jock VI, a seven month old kitten, was recruited for the role. Goviers are delighted to be working with Chartwell House to produce this wonderful Royal Crown Derby limited edition paperweight of Jock VI. The prototype design model, produced by Jane James, currently takes pride of place in Chartwell's new Winston Churchill Exhibition, which marks the 50th anniversary of his passing. The exhibition is open until the end of February 2015. For further details of the exhibition, and Chartwell House and Garden opening times, please visit or telephone 01732 868381.
