The Jewell Motor Car Company of Massillon, Ohio, formerly the Forest City Motor Car Company, manufactured the Jewell brass era automobile from 1906 to 1909.[1]


A prototype automobile was built by Forest City Motor Car Company but investors moved to Massillon and renamed the car the Jewell. The Jewell was a single-cylinder high-wheeler of 8 to 10hp. In 1908 the marque name was changed to Jewel and a 40hp Rutenber 4-cylinder car was added. In 1909 the company name was changed to Jewel Motor Car Company but by the end of the year the company was reorganized as the Croxton-Keeton Motor Company and the Jewel name was dropped.[1]
