An assortment of give-aways from the Ariel factory, mostly associated with the Motorcycle business.

A set of six silver cocktail sticks in a presentation box. These were presented to attendees to the First International Banquet of Motor Cycle Dealers at Pillar Hall, Olympia on December 1st, 1929. The logo is the Ariel Horse, used 1928-1930.

Below left is an Ariel brooch of a type given away with any Ariel bought in 1909. It is 1.5 inches high. To the right of that are four tiepins or stick pins. The horse logo appeared on the motorcycles in 1928 and was used until 1930. The small triangular logo was probably circa 1928-29. The large triangular badge looks later, perhaps 1931. The horseshoe badge is rather later, probably late 30's or even 40's.

below right are four buttonhole badges. The square buttonhole badge was given away with an Ariel Square Four in 1931. The top Horseshoe buttonhole badge dates to the 1930's, the other two probably 1940's or early 1950's.
