NOW SOLD -sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We do not have a licence granted by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd to reproduce any of the Aston Martin badges or logos.
None of the keyrings listed in this website shop feature badges with the Aston Martin logo which have been produced by us.
The badge on this keyring is an original item which we would date as being around 40 years old.
An original Aston Martin keyfob badge which we are offering remounted onto a new slimline teardrop keyfob in black pigskin as can be seen in the photos.
Pigskin is probably the most hard wearing and durable of all leathers when used for a keyfob – and was sometimes used by Aston Martin for special keyrings.
This gilt plated vitreous enamel badge is in excellent condition and the only criticism that we can level against it is that there is some slight ‘hazing’ of the surface of the polished green enamel circumference at 8 0’clock on the face of the badge .
This can just be seen under close scrutiny with the naked eye at life size when the badge is tilted from side to side in the light – which is something which will not often happen.
The Aston Martin winged badge is a very intricate design with tiny horizontal panels of white enamel intersected in this case with ultra thin strips of gilt plated base metal.
Vintage badges such as this one which have received some use do often display some enamel loss from the horizontal panels of white enamel – those contained in this badge are perfect.
The badge was made by the famous Manhattan Windsor badgemakers of Birmingham who made almost all Aston Martin keyrings- sadly they have been closed for some time.
Their details would have been cast into the back of the badge but the badge has been milled ( by Manhattan Windsor ) to create the open appearance and Manhattan Windsor’s details have been milled away – the top band of the panel which would have contained their details is just visible on the back of the badge.
We would date the badge as having been produced in the 1970s but it could have been produced in the 1960s.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/59 04/20
