Lot details

The late Lord John Montagu was a Member of Parliament and motoring enthusiast. It is documented that he drove his Daimler into the yard of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster in 1899, the car adorned a bronze St Christopher figurine (designed by Charles Sykes) to its radiator cap. Reputedly, this was the first time a mascot was ever fitted to a motorcar and only a handful of the Sykes-deigned St. Christophers are known to exist.
