FAUN / Nurnberg Ansbach / Germany  ( 1918 - 1990 )

The  German FAUN (= Fahrzeugfabriken Ansbach und Nurnberg) started truck production in 1918.
In 1924 to 1927 they offered a private car without any commercial success.
From 1928 to 1990 only commercial trucks were built.

Here I present to you the rare radiator emblem of the private car of 1924:

To my knowledge this is the oldest enameled truck emblem:

Size7.0 cm x 7.4 cm
Year 1931 

reverse without makers mark

the emblem design was patented in 1931

Size7.0 cm x 7.4 cm
Yearc. 1938 

reverse without makers mark

I have never seen a truck or a photo of a truck showing this particular emblem.
Nevertheless it is a wonderful item.

This FAUN emblem is showing a medieval  tower of the old city of Nurnberg and the design was patented in 1927:

After WWII there were metal emblems only like this nice radiator cap.

FAUN emblem made in the nineteensixties
