OBQ 947: The muse and the man.

She was originally just a muse of a wealthy baron, but as the destiny would have it this muse  became the inspiration for one of the most famous brand identities of all time.

Who is she and which brand identity was derived from her?

Answer: She is Eleanor Thornton the lady after whom the Rolls Royce logo of Spirit of Ecstasy is modeled.
