The history of Grill Badges goes all the way back to
the early 1900’s
when the first auto clubs displayed them on their new horseless
carriages. They continued in popularity throughout the century for automobile,
sports car clubs.
These fine pieces of art have been in resurgence over the
last several decades helping to bring some of the “old iron” to
its true period tradition with some of the original style
Grill and License plate adornments.
The tradition of displaying club colors grew along with
club participation right from the start, through the roaring
and then beyond into the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, and are
now frequently used by clubs to keep their vehicles period
correct, while still maintaining modern club affiliations.
Our Grill Badges are made
with the same technology and materials that the original
cloisonné’ grill badges were
made from back in the day. Die struck Steel, Brass, Copper, and Nickel,
materials with different finishes of satin, bright, plated in Gold, Silver,
Brass, Chrome, or Nickel with either a Cloisonné or enamel
fill for your clubs design and colors.
These badges or tags can be mounted to either the car’s
grill or license plate mount as was tradition, and are available
with various hardware based on your specific needs.
