It is a pleasure to collect Peugeot emblems. Because of their history of more than 120 years you  still have the chance to find a never seen Peugeot emblem. My collection started with Peugeot emblems in the seventies. Now I own about 40 different prewar Peugeot emblems. And there are a lot  more emblems if you also collect the younger emblems.

This is one of the oldest of my Peugeot emblems:

Peugeot radiator emblem

Size 6.8 cm x 11.6 cm

In 1913 the famous PEUGEOT Bébé was offered with  an engine constructed by Ettore BUGATTI.
Here you see the lovely brass radiator emblem. I had to buy the whole radiator to get an original emblem.
Only 3,095 cars were sold.

This is my all time favorite of Peugeot emblems:

5.9 cm

1913 adverstisement showing, that Peugeot exported to Germany even before WWI


Here you see the typical Peugeot emblems of the twenties:

Ther was a small and a large version. The large version is very rare. You find it on the type 153.
So the evaluation is for the large version:

Size 5.3 cm x 10.0 cm

This is the most commun prewar enameled Peugeot emblem. You still have the chance to buy a fine original for small money.

Size4.0 x  8.2 cm
Year1920 - 1926

From 1924 to 1929 there was a PEUGEOT production plant in Milano / Italy.
Of course they had their own emblem, but still made in the French style of the type 201.
