‘The PULLMAN Trophy’
John Elwell (English, born 1949)
The inaugural Windsor Concours of Elegance took place on the 7th – 9th of September 2012. This prestigious new event was to celebrating the style and glamour of historic automobiles. In the unique setting of Windsor Castle, sixty of the world’s greatest motor cars were displayed for three days in the inner Quadrangle of our most historic Royal Castle, in celebration of six decades of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
‘Best in Show’ was awarded to Jon Shirley from America, for his 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta. Pullman Gallery is pleased to have donated the winner’s trophy – working to our own design, John Elwell created The PULLMAN Trophy, standing almost 30 inches (75 cm) tall, the highly polished, engineering-grade sculpture depicts an Art Deco-inspired Pegasus ‘emerging’ from its plinth of seasoned walnut. John also sculpted a smaller version which was given to Jon Shirley to keep.
