ENQUIRE ABOUT THIS ITEM...

'Spirit of Ecstasy' by Charles Sykes

‘The Spirit of Ecstasy’

A large showroom display bronze of the legendary Rolls Royce mascot designed by Charles Sykes R.A., the dark patinated bronze sculpture with verde marble base, set on a massive turned bronze plinth. Signed by the artist in the bronze and numbered 63. English, circa 1930.

The first edition of 8 showroom bronzes were cast in 1911, the year that Sykes designed the Spirit of Ecstasy, and were all allocated to principal Rolls-Royce showrooms in London, Paris, New York and other major cities. During the 1930s, possibly to mark the silver jubilee of the company, Rolls-Royce commissioned a second, larger edition of Charles Sykes’ masterpiece, of which this is a fine example.

Height overall: 26 inches (66 cms).
