Alfa Romeo – original vintage late 1950s enamel on gilt badge keyring
We have just this one example of this very scarce original Alfa Romeo enamel on gilt badge which is offered mounted onto one of our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.
This is the only example of this badge which we have ever seen over the last 10 years- we have owned it for a long time and have only just decided to mount it onto a leather fob and offer it for sale here in the website shop.
The badge is in very good condition considering it's age- the vitreous enamelling is all intact as it should be.
The translucent red enamel on the red cross is rather opaque - but has probably had this appearance since the badge was made in the late 1950s or very early 1960s.
These early gilt badges mellow so well !
Whilst being in good condition they also really look their age - there is no mistaking this badge for a later reproduction !
No doubt the gilt would polish up with an application of metal polish - but doing this would be a great shame. It will tend brighten to a degree with use.
The badge is original & correct for any late 1950s or 1960s Alfa Romeo motor car.
When it has been sold this listing will cancel.
