The rare badge mounted onto this keyring is an original keyfob badge which will have been produced in the 1960s.
We have remounted the badge onto a new keyfob in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.
The badge is in excellent condition for it’s age – the vitreous enamelling is all intact with no chips or cracks .
There is some slight surface flecking in the white enamel which will have been there since the badge was made – white vitreous enamel was very prone to flaws and in the 1960s the enamel was actually individually hand laid .
This can be seen in the enlarged high resolution listing photos.
The gilt plating has mellowed to give a soft glow as gilt plating always does to give a lovely impression of the age of the badge – the appearance of these original gilt plated badges just cannot not be replicated .
The badge was made in England ( probably Birmingham ) – at that time almost all keyrings for the world’s cars were made in England – it was quite an industry.
This badge is original & correct for use with any pre-1972 Alfa Romeo motor car or could be used as a ‘retro’ keyring in a much later car .
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
