Dolls from Antoine Rochard are extremely difficult to come by. The Grovian Doll Museum possesses two models including the ingénue shown here. Originally retailed at the prestigious Maison Simonne on Paris' famed boulevard, Rue de Rivoli, this petite example has a single Stanhope mounted in her shoulderplate, representing the drop in an intricate necklace. When one looks through the Stanhope, the reward is a black and white view of Jesus holding the hand of a child.
Jaguar XKSS. Steve McQueen pictured in his beloved ‘Green Rat’. He spotted this car parked in a studio lot on Sunset Boulevard in 1958. This rare machine was one of only 16 to hit the streets before a fire at Jaguar finished the conversions. McQueen paid $5,000 for his off-white model, then respraying it British Racing Green and having friend Tony Nancy re-craft the red interior in stitched black leather.
