The object of the day: The King George V toby

The King George V toby is the largest, most desireable, of a numbered set of World War I leaders made by the Wilkinson Royal Staffordshire Pottery Company, and was limited to 1,000 sets.

They were designed by Carruthers Gould, whose signature appears on the base, but are generally referred to as Wilkinsons. 
This one is 587A (the A designates that it is King George V).

12.5-inches high
5.75-inches wide
6-inches deep
