The ETABLISSEMENTS FOURNIER  started car production in Levallois / France in 1913.
They offered small cars under the name of BABY SYLVESTRE, using a Ballot engine for the 4-cylinder car.

In 1920 the famous racing driver  Charles Fournier designed the new ZEILLER FOURNIER, again with a 4-cylinder BALLOT engine.

The 2-cylinder car were apparently always called FOURNIER.

So here I present you the ZEILLER FOURNIER and the FOURNIER emblem:

emblem made with no dams between the colors (like Bugatti !)

Dimensionsca. 3.0 cm x 5.0  cm
Year1920 - 1924

reverse of the ZEILLER FOURNIER (as usual in France: no makers mark )

Here you see the emblem of the 2-cylinder cycle car ( light car):

Dimensions 5.5 cm x 4.0 cm
Year1920 - 1924

I had to buy the whole radiator to get the emblem
In the net you can read that there was no connection between Fournier and Zeiller Fournier.
But there was as they had the same engine supplier ( BALLOT) and even the same adress.

For more beautiful car emblems see top right ( list of car makers ) or older posts.
