NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
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.
This keyring is an original vintage item which dates from the late 1950s.
A lovely original Bentley keyring dating from the late 1950s and the only example of this design which we have ever seen- much rarer than the torpedo keyfobs which are so highly prized.
The nickel plated badge is mounted onto a genuine leather keyfob of octagonal design.
The keyfob is gold embossed ‘REAL MOROCCO – MADE IN ENGLAND’ although this is now very feint.
‘MOROCCO’ was the old term for goatskin which was sometimes used for keyfobs for prestige cars like Bentley.
Prior to this one of the main uses for goatskin apart from high quality shoes was in the making of the earlier A2 flight jackets in World War 2- the very best of these were in goatskin.
This keyring is in the condition which matches a 60 year old car – beautifully patinated after many years of careful use and many, many thousands of miles of travel.
The nickel plating on the badge has worn through to the brass base metal over all the high points and the black goatskin leather has taken on a high polish after all those years of use.
Goatskin is a relatively thin leather -so the keyfob has an extra lamination of leather within the 2 outer skins to build it up to the desired thickness.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/521 12/19
