The Humber Pullman was a 4-door limousine that was introduced by the British Humber Company in 1930 as a successor to the Humber Snipe. In 1948, this car came with a partition that separated the occupant from the chauffeur. During World War II, production was stopped but few were made as staff cars for carrying senior military officers.
For a brief period in 1939, this car was given a small upgrade and renamed as the Humber Imperal with the central partition removed but it didn’t found popularity and was quickly withdrawn from the market with the original again appearing with the Pullman name. Production finally ended in 1954.
Owner of famous french winery based in Bordeaux called Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Baronness Philippine Mathilde Camilde more well-known as Baronness Rothschild, owned a custom made Humber Pullman that was executed by Thrupp & Maberly (well-known coachbuilders). Inside were plush leather seats with luxury fittings. There was a glass partition between the driver and the rear seats. The colour of her driver's seat was the same as the external paint colour i.e. wine red, while her rear seats were in cream colour. This car with registration number bearing OUV 999 was always parked at the famous Claridge's Hotel, London and she used it only when she visited Great Britain. This car is now kept in a private musuem.
This scale model is an exact rendition of her car.
