John Bull is the national personification of the Englishman---he fills the same role that Uncle Sam does in America. Whereas Uncle Sam is lean, John Bull is usually portrayed with a pot belly, which can be blamed on hearty meals of beef and many mugs of ale.
I have recorded only four examples of this figure. Each time John Bull's face has red dots. Warts? Acne? Pock marks? I haven't a clue. But determining this Staffordshire figure's identity earned it a spot in my collection.
