SIZAIRE NAUDIN / FRANCE

The brothers Maurice and Georges Sizaire and their partner Louis Naudin founded the  SA des Automobiles Sizaires et Naudin in Paris / France   in 1903.
In 1905 they offered a light car using a De Dion Bouton engine.
In 1912 the Sizaire brothers left the company and after the dead of Louis Naudin the company was renamed in Societé des Etablissements Sizaire et Naudin.
The Sizaire brothers together with Fredrick William Berwick started a new car production in London named Sizaire Berwick and in France named SIZAIRE FRERES.


original SIZAIRE NAUDIN radiator emblem showing the wear of more than 100 years
The blue and red flag was the crest of the duke d`Uzes who was the financier of this company, this emblem was used from 1906 on.

Dimensions12 cm
Year1909 - 1912
Estimate
 




I had to buy the whole radiator to get this wonderful emblem


A lot of SIZAIRE et NAUDIN cars were imported  to the UK by Charles Jarrott and Letts,  so the emblem is showing the initials C.J.L.


nice repro,  but be aware that the  red and blue colors  are not transparent so it is easy to identify a repro
