NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
A superb original Alvis keyring – and one of only 3 or 4 Alvis pigskin keyrings which we have ever seen over the last 10 years- another of which in rather poorer condition is currently listed here in this website shop ( unless now sold )
The keyring is in excellent condition – it can hardly have been used – and will date from the late 1950s.
The vitreous enamel badge is mounted onto a genuine tan pigskin keyfob.
Pigskin was ( and is ) a most upmarket material and rarely used for keyfobs apart from occasional keyrings commissioned by Aston Martin.
The badge will almost certainly have been made by Castles Unit Development Co. of Church Gate Leicester ( CUD) but will in all probability have been mounted onto the pigskin keyfob by another keyring manufacturer at the time – possibly AE Wassell of Birmingham.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
