Rolls-Royce, Jasperware's plates produced by the historic English company Wedgwood, and commissioned by the National Motor Museum Beaulieu, formerly known as the Montagu Motor Museum. About 1980s.

The Montagu Motor Musuem was opened in 1952 by Edward Douglas-Scott-Montagu, third Baron Montagu of Beaulieu, to remember his father, a figure also known for being a pioneer in the automotive field and a great enthusiast and collector of Rolls-Royce and Bentley. John Walter Edward Montagu Douglas Scott in 1911 commissioned to Charles Sykes a statuette to be applied on the radiator of his Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, and thus was born the mascot "Spirt of Ecstasy" or "Fliyng Lady", inspired by Eleanor Thornton, lover of the second Baron Montagu of Beaulieu and which is still present today on the classic Greek-style radiators characteristic of all Rolls-Royces.

Wedgwood is a historic pottery company founded in England in 1759, also known for the production of objects in Jasperware, the direct result of over 5,000 carefully recorded experiments and undertaken over a period of several years. Developed towards the end of 1774, Jasperware included a dense white stoneware, ideal for blending with all colors, and Wedgwood Blue is one such color. Objects made in Jasperware are normally decorated with white, traditionally neoclassical figures but, many other themes have also been used.
