We are not licensed by Bentley Motors to reproduce the Bentley winged logo and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature Bentley keyfob badges with the Bentley winged logo which have been made by us.
These keyrings have original vintage badges which date from the 1960s.
Over the last 10 years we have listed just a couple of these badges remounted onto new leather keyfobs but in green vitreous enamel .
We didn’t know that the badge was also produced in blue enamel until an original keyring with the blue enamel badge turned up in well used condition ( currently listed in a separate listing unless now sold ) and we were then offered these 5 badges !
These badges will date from the 1960s and will have been made by one of the Birmingham badgemakers but are simply marked ‘Made In England’
At that time there were many badgemakers producing top quality vitreous enamel badges like these in the Birmingham area .
The badges are in excellent condition with nickel plating and genuine jewellery grade vitreous enamel in a most attractive shade of what we would describe as ‘airforce blue’.
We are offering the badges remounted onto slimline teardrop keyfobs in genuine vintage black pigskin which will be almost as old as the badges themselves.
Pigskin was sometimes used for keyfobs particularly by Aston Martin but also by Jaguar and Bentley as well as smaller manufacturers of prestige vehicles such as Armstrong Siddeley .
Pigskin was ( and is ) considered as a luxury material prized for it’s distinctive grained appearance and is particularly hard wearing – which is ideal for a keyfob.
Pigskin of the correct grade for making keyfobs seems to be no longer available and we were lucky some years ago to be able to buy a small stock from a firm in Birmingham which was closing down and had been producing gentlemen’s wallets and hip flasks using pigskin many years previously.
This has resulted in a superb keyring which could be used in any Bentley motor car and will be unrepeatable once these 5 keyrings have been sold.
When all 5 keyrings have been sold then this listing will be cancelled.
