SPERBER / NAW

SPERBER from NAW radiator emblem
The NORDDEUTSCHE AUTOMOBIL- WERKE started in Hameln on Weser in 1907 their car production with a car called COLIBRI.  NAW  built light cars and they were 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 and not an eagle.
This emblem is one of the oldest German car emblems still in existence.

Dimensions 14.0 cm x 10.0 cm
Year1911 - 1919
Estimate
