BEAN radiator emblem

The British BEAN  ( 1919 - 1929) was a remodelling of the PERRY light car, whose manufactures were taken over by Harper Sons & Bean. Their best year was 1922 with ca 4,000 cars sold.
There are two sizes of this beautiful emblem. A collectors dream.
 Here you see the smaller  one.

Dimensions7.0 cm x 5.8 cm

Here you see the first BEAN radiator emblem. It is a three color emblem with the lion in brass.

Dimensions7.7 cm x 6.8 cm
Year1919 - 1920

And here you see the last BEAN radiator emblem, before it became BEAN HADFIELD. So we can date it to 1926.
