Richard Brasier manufactured high-performance chain-driven racing cars from 1902, winning the legendary Coupe Gordon-Bennett in both 1904 and 1905. Co-founder Georges Richard left in 1905 to found UNIC, and the marque was renamed simply ‘Brasier’. Brasier subsequently adopted the ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace’ as its car mascot (reference 5034), with this larger version being cast in a handful of examples for use in the company’s boardroom and showrooms.
