The NORDDEUTSCHE AUTOMOBIL- WERKE  (NAW) started in Hameln on Weser in 1907 car production with a car called COLIBRI.  NAW  built light cars and was relatively successful so they offered a second type the SPERBER in 1911, also named after a bird (german for sparrowhawk).
On this detailled brass emblem you see a SPERBER,  not an eagle.
This emblem is one of the oldest German car emblems still in existence.
