Very RARE Vintage SPORTS CAR mascot for Rolls Royce Phantom III, Wraith, Silver Wraith, & Phantom IV cars*

A highly-collectible ICONIC & Genuine Rolls-Royce KNEELING Car Mascot affectionately called "The Spirit of Ecstasy"

Also called Eleanor, Silver Lady, or Flying Lady, she was designed by Sykes, a graduate of London's Royal College of Art, & carries with it a story about a secret passion between Montagu, 2nd Baron Montagu of Beaulieu after 1905, a pioneer of the automobile movement, & editor of The Car Illustrated magazine from 1902, & the model for the emblem, Eleanor Velasco Thornton

Made ONLY 1933 to 1955

Various versions, produced from solid Nickel, Silver-plated Bronze, or Chrome-plated Brass

Cast embossed with signature of designer C. Sykes on base

Left wing marked Reg.Us. Pat. Off & under the right Trade Mark Reg.

Post-1940 the kneeling mascots were made by Rolls-Royce themselves, their manufactured versions are unsigned, early post-war will have 2 wing markings

later only 1 wing marked "Reg US Pat. Office"

The stainless steel mascots were made with no markings or signature

Some 1950's kneeling mascots are impressed around the base "Rolls Royce Motors Ltd."

Most have never even seen a real Rolls Royce car, let alone been mounted on one, & driven about proudly advertising that most iconic & illustrious marque


This is a GUARANTEED 100% GENUINE vintage R.R. Mascot

Guaranteed to be-so "FOR LIFE" (With my usual full money-back purchase price & postage BOTH ways, so do please bid with confidence)

A truly SUPERB display piece that will enhance any room, Bar, collection, Garage, Man Cave, or Museum

Or REPLACE a missing R.R. mascot on your Rolls Royce, if some Toerag nicked yours?

This could also make a SUPERB & truly UNIQUE GIFT

BE ADVISED that sadly 99% of ALL Rolls-Royce mascots seen for sale on TM or WWW are reproductions, copies, or outright FAKES

REPRODUCTIONS are now widely mass-produced in China, India, & Indonesia
