The Maison Parisienne was a Frenchautomobile manufactured from 1897 until around 1898. They were Benz built under license by a M. Laboure of La Maison Parisienne to be sold on the French market. Some were sold under the name "l'Eclair". In 1898 the company engineer, a M. Serex, designed a flat-twin car which ran in the Marseille-Nice Race of that year; this, too, was built along the lines of a Benz.
