NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

We are not licensed by BMW or any of their representatives to reproduce any of the registered BMW designs.

The keyring in this listing has an original vintage BMW keyfob badge which will have been produced around 50 years ago which we have remounted onto a new keyfob in black pigskin leather as can be seen in the photos .

Just this one keyring to offer in black pigskin  – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

This vitreous enamel badge is new old stock and will probably never have been mounted onto a leather keyfob at the time.

The badge is in hand laid vitreous enamel and is looking as fresh and bright as the day when it was made .

Being hand laid – the vitreous enamel is not as uniform in depth as more recently produced vitreous enamel badges – this gives a pleasing ‘dimpled’ vintage look to the badge which could never be replicated by modern means.

In the 1960s almost all keyrings for British & European cars were made in England – it was quite an industry .

BMW motor cars were still relatively rare on UK roads at that time with the result that not many BMW keyrings were made compared to the quantities made for British makes of car.

The badge mounted onto this keyring came to us from the closed works of Heath & Machin & Co. of Walsall who were keyring manufacturers in their own right and also made leather keyfobs for the very well known Melsom Products Ltd – mounting Melsom’s own badges onto leather keyfobs for them.

The badge mounted onto the keyring in this listing will have been made by Heath & Machin for mounting onto one of their own leather keyfobs.

Heath & Machin & Co. were bought out by new owners in the 1970s and continued to make small leather goods until the 1990s .

This particular keyring has the badge mounted onto a keyfob in genuine black pigskin – the keyring which you will receive is the actual one in the photos. SMOSO  00/59   11/21
