PILAIN / FRANCE

PILAIN radiator emblem


The SOCIETE  DES AUTOMOBILES PILAIN  was founded in LYON / FRANCE in 1902.  Francois PILAIN started with small engines but in the end there was a 6.3 litre engine. Don´t confuse this car maker with the  quite well known ROLLAND - PILAIN (look at my alphabetical list on the right).  Round radiators were featured and on the emblem you see a copy of these radiators. Even the emblem is on the emblem. What a nice idea.

Dimensionsca. 6.1 cm x 6.1 cm
Year1902 - 1920
Estimate

                                        Backside of an original embelm. No makers mark.
