AQUILA ITALIANA

AQUILA ITALIANA radiator emblem

 

Giulio Pallavicino  et Giulio Cesare Cappa started car production  under the name of the
Societa Anonima Aquila in Turino / Italy in 1906.
They added the word ITALIANA  in 1911 as there were confusions with the German ADLER, because AQUILA and ADLER are the same word for Eagle.
This emblem is from the Bregonzio / Milano collection liquidated in 2009.

Size
 8.9 cm x 6.0 cm
Year1913
Estimate

Pay attention: the original emblem is not flat, look at the  vaulted eagle ! All reproductions are flat.
