Named for the use of brilliant brass metal in hardware, fitting, lights and radiators. Brass era automobiles are known for their distinct style. Brass era is also another term for horseless carriages, a name originally used for these early automobiles. It was truly the golden age of motoring, with unusual designs and creative styling running wild inside the manufacturers. Many of the standards of automobile manufacturing had not yet been established. Designers and engineers feasted on the endless possibilities of horseless carriage design. It wasn't until Système Panhard was widely adopted, that even the familiar layout of front engine, rear-drive was relatively standardized amongst manufacturers. The Brass era was truly a time of endless possibilities and elegance, with craftsmanship and outlandish style at the very top of the priority list.
In later years, war efforts and high costs would shape the automotive industry more into what we recognize today. The boutique builders of the Brass era faded quickly as manufacturers such as Ford Motor Company began to offer much more affordable automobiles and in much higher numbers. Even today, coach-built automobiles can be bought new, but it was the Brass era that defined the elegant, bespoke automobile and created one of the most prestigious and unique automobile collector segments.
