An original Aston Martin key wallet which will have been produced in the late 1960s or 1970s.

Just this one example to offer – when this key wallet has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

When we received this key wallet part of one of the press studs was missing – so in that case we have replaced both press studs with new black press studs of exactly the same pattern .

You are most unlikely to have known this – but we do prefer to describe any repairs which we have carried out .

A very rare item – and the only example which we have ever listed .

An original Aston Martin key wallet which will probably have been marketed by Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham who marketed these car key wallets at the time.

However it will most probably have actually been made by Heath Machin & Co. of Walsall – who made these items for Melsoms.

In the closed position ( which is how the wallet would be used ) the wallet is hardly bigger than a keyring and the ignition key would be safely nestled within the wallet and is actually a rather better thing to keep in the pocket than a keyring with a bunch of keys jangling around .

The wallet would then be opened and the ignition key retained on one of the hooks within the wallet would be swung out and the wallet would then be closed.

The ignition key would then be used as normal with the little wallet dangling from it .

The wallet measures approximately 3″ x 1.75″ ( 75mm x 45mm ) closed.

Opened up it measures approximately 5″ x 3″ ( 100mm x 75mm )

It is in really excellent condition as can be seen in the photos.

The vitreous enamel badge is mounted onto the key wallet which is in genuine full grain black leather .

The press studs ( poppers ) snap shut with precision to close & secure the wallet as they should.

The 4 key hooks for mounting the car keys onto within the wallet are strongly mounted onto the leather case.

The key wallet in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
