A rare bronze bust of Winston Churchill that is identical to the one in the White House has emerged for sale for £150,000.<br />
<br />
The 15ins bust of the great wartime leader is one of 10 limited edition copies made by sculptor Sir Jacob Epstein in 1947.<br />
<br />
One of those was donated to the White House in 1965 by group of American wartime friends of Churchill.<br />
<br />
It was controversially moved out of the Oval Office by Barack Obama and replaced with Martin Luther King. <br />
<br />
President Donald Trump then put it back in place in 2017.
