The designer was Richard so they called it Richard-Brasier. Georges Richard left this firm in 1905 and the firm became known as just Brasier.

The emblems are showing a four-leafed clover. According to The Radiator Emblem Collection, the 1904 Richard-Brasier had the first enameled radiator emblem ever made. From this time on it became a fashion around the world. In the fifties the enamel was replaced by the much cheaper plastic.
