RILEY 6 Ski lady badge

Dimensions 11.0 x 6.1

What a beautiful emblem !  RILEY produced four - wheelers from 1907 onwards.  1927 saw the production of RILEY´s loveley Nine HP 1100cc that became the basis of all RILEY designs until 1957. From 1957 on all RILEY´s were versions of BMC originals. In 1969 they stopped the RILEY production. Today the trademark belongs to BMW.

what a combination: ski lady mascot with ski lady emblem

Normally the RILEY emblem is always a rhomb like this. So you have to collect different sizes and colors. Here you see the large prewar emblem from 1931, 1932. Prewar RILEY emblems are hard to find.
