The French BRASIER started car production in 1902. It was a voiturette  (= very small car) of the German Benz type. The designer was Richard  so they called it RICHARD - BRASIER. Georges RICHARD left this firm in 1905 and the firm became known as BRASIER only.
The emblems are showing a four - leafed clover. To my knowledge the 1904 RICHARD - BRASIER had the first enameled radiotor emblem ever made. From this time on it became a fashion around the world. In the fifties the enamel was replaced by the much cheaper plastic.

In 1920 the emblem became rectangulaire:
