DKW


Sizewith frame 9 cm x 4.3 cm
Year1928 - 1930
Estimate

 This is the hard to find emblem of the very first DKW car. They started the production of the type P 15  in 1928. On their motocycles you see the same emblem, but there was  a decal only. Here it is a two color enamel emblem in a frame.

 D.K.W. that  means: DampfKraftWagen ( Steam Power Automobile ).

 Later the abbreviation was also used for: (Das) little (Kleine) Wonder (Wunder). What a nice idea for a new car.
