about

The Figurine was inspired by a long buried true story of grand passion and tragedy in Edwardian era England. In the early 1900's, when motorcars had newly been invented, Eleanor Velasco Thornton, a London secretary, went to work in the office of a car magazine owned by a lord. The secretary and the lord fell in love and their great affair ultimately sparked the creation of the Rolls-Royce hood ornament. Here fact is lavishly embroidered with fiction to bring this remarkable fragment of automobile history to life. You will find much more about the fascinating woman in this story on my blog.
