HISPANO SUIZA

the holes are original

The HISPANO - SUIZA (1904 - 1944)  emblem is showing the Spanish flag (red and yellow) and the Swiss flag (white cross on red ground) in a cercle between two wings because this high price car was produced in this two countries.
The money to  build this car came from the Spanish founders Damian Bisa and Francisco Seix, the technology from the Swiss founder  Marc Birkigt.
From 1919 to 1931 the type " H6 " was the most expensiv car in Europe.
As the car was expensive the emblem is still expensive. So there are a lot of reprodctions, even more than
originals !

Dimensions15.1cm x 5.0 cm
Year1923
Estimate
 



very early emblem without holes
