The Breese, Lawrence, Moulton Motor Car and Equipment Company was established in 1906 and the first BLM car, announced in August 1906, was an expensive 85 hp model based on an experimental race car built by Breese and Lawrence in 1905. This car was not successful. However, in 1907, the BLM became a lower-priced, sporty looking car called the Pirate Runabout powered by a 24 hp four-cylinder engine imported from France. For more elegant motoring an attractive 16 hp four-cylinder landaulet was also offered.
The photo came from the emblem photo collection of Al Thurn but what became of the emblem, I do not know. If you have the emblem or a better quality photo, please let me know in order to update this post.
The emblem is shown in an illustration in an original BLM brochure, see below:
