Alfa Romeo – vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a new leather keyfob

NOW SOLD – sorry these keyrings have now been sold and can no longer be ordered

Three relatively new vitreous enamel Alfa Romeo keyfob badges which will have been produced in Birmingham within the last few years which we have mounted onto new leather keyfobs as can be seen in the photos .

These are not original vintage badges – they will have been produced just a few years ago and are not to be confused with original vintage badge from the 1970s – these badges were made much later.

We have just these three keyrings with these badges to offer  – when all three have been sold this listing will be cancelled.

Superb quality ‘old school’ vitreous enamel badges like these were produced in Birmingham  – ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ marked on the reverse of the badges – probably from the original 1970s badge dies – and were available up until quite recently .

We have remounted the badges onto new leather keyfobs in black saddlery hide.

Sadly vitreous enamel badges like these are apparently no longer produced in England .

These badges are virtually identical to the original keyfob badges which were produced in the 1970s – but these badges are not original badges –  they were produced much later .

New reproduction badges will now usually be produced in modern resin based enamel – not vitreous enamel like these – and are most unlikely to have ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ marked on the reverse because they are no longer made in England .

Maybe one day in the future beautiful quality vitreous enamel badges like these will once again be made in England ……………………..but the areas where the workshops once stood have now generally been built over with housing estates and the craftsmen with their knowledge and skills have gone .
