In 1911 Royce became gravely ill, he was a workaholic and hardly ever ate properly. The company almost collapsed. He took an extended holiday in Europe and Egypt. Fortunately for Rolls-Royce this allowed him to concentrate on designing for the future. At about this time it became fashionable to put a mascot on the radiator of your car. Royce wanted a mascot befitting the style of The Best Car in The World. Artist Charles Sykes was commissioned to design a suitable mascot and came up with the The Spirit of Ecstasy (The Flying Lady). Its design was patented on February 6th 1911. The model is thought to have been Eleanor Thornton, secretary of Lord Montague. From 1911 this mascot was the suggested and officially approved mascot. Throughout the years, there have been two main versions of the Spirit of Ecstasy mascot, a kneeling version, and a standing version. Although reduced to a mere 3inches today, the standing version of the mascot still adorns Rolls-Royce motorcars. The “SPIRIT OF ECSTASY” mascot celebrated 100 years old on February 6th 2011.
