At the Countess of Warwick’s Country Show in Little Easton you’ll find a lot of vintage cars on display, including a fair number of Rolls Royce’s. This is because Great Easton has a Rolls Royce dealer – P & A Wood, indeed, they brought the 1918 Le Rhone Rotary engine mentioned in yesterday’s post.

Anyhow, there was a quite fantastic Rolls Royce Silver Ghost from 1912 and here’s the Silver Lady (properly called the The Spirit of Ecstasy apparently) from it – note the engraving “Charles Sykes Feb 6th 1911” Sykes designed the mascot and all Rolls Royce Silver Ladies were engraved with his name and that date until 1951.

and finally a view of some of the car itself
