Default Looking for Engine Logo Pictures

I make laminated signs for each of my engines showing the basic specs. and some back ground information. I like to put a small copy of the company logo on top. I have two engines that are new to my display this year that I have not had any luck getting a logo for. I don't need high quality pictures, I'm not making decals, just printing a 2" X 2" or so graphic on paper. So, if anyone can point me to a picture, or send me one, for the following, I would greatly appreciate it:

Witte (late 1920's vintage)
Bean Sprayer (same vintage)
Ideal R air-cooled mower engine (later style with squarish cover)

Thanks!

I think so. I don't know what the Witte logo looked like but unless some one says otherwise I will use that one. Thanks.

I don't think Witte used one until the Diesels came along painted gray!

It seems like Larry has what you need. If you go to this link there is a catalog that might give you more history if you are interested. There is also a picture of the same logo on a ca 1925 engine. Hope this helps.

C.H. Wendel has an excellent book out called "Gas Engine Trademarks" that has something like 175 pages of old engine trademarks.This is a hardcover book that I think I gave around $20 or $25 for when I got mine.{Wrth every cent} I think I saw last mont that G.E.M, was giving it out FREE with a paid Sub. to the magazine,but not sure on that though.

I know they had the logo on their brass tag, but did they ever produce a Decal for the engines?
I've never seen a headless, or a type "B" with a decal.
