FIAT radiator emblem
This is the first enamelled FIAT emblem in the long history of FIAT emblems. You can still see the chassis number on the emblem. It is a typical art nouveau emblem with floral pattern. You find the same style on the PRESTO (Germany), DIATTO (Italy) and RAPID (Italy) pre World War I emblems
