                   EMBLEM AND BADGE RESTORATION
 


Emblems and badges can be restored to 100-point show quality level and all are mechanically functional.  Many such restorations have been on vehicles at Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Hershey, Newport Beach, The Quail and Villa d'Este.


Emblems were works of art that showcased the makerís logo with durable and vibrant vitreous [glass] enamel colors. They began to disappear in the 1940ís except on high end cars. They remained common in Europe through the 1960ís. Some prestige vehicles still carry vitreous enamel emblems.

These automotive "jewels" ultimately could be found on the radiator or hood, trunk, side panels, hubcaps, dashboard, horn, headlights and as coachbuilder tags. Just those, multiplied by the different manufacturers, models and years can run into thousands of variations.  Then there are the pins, plaques, jewelry and watch/key fobs.
