Citroen – original vintage 1960s Avon Cliff keyring with cream & black leather keyfob – collector’s item

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

An original Citroen keyring which will have been produced in the 1960s.

We have just this one example of this scarce keyring – when this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

This original Citroen keyring was produced in the 1960s by Avon Cliff badgemakers and is in superb condition – probably new old stock which has never been used .

The vitreous enamel badge with the distinctive single chevron is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine cream leather with contrasting black stitching – whilst the back of the keyring is in genuine black leather !

It is unbelievable how much trouble Avon Cliff put into making these keyrings which must have been individually hand selected and stitched to achieve such variation.

Many of the original Avon Cliff keyrings which we have seen over the years have different leather and stitching colours – even to the degree of having different coloured leather on the front & back of the keyfob like this one .

Very ‘up-market ‘ for the rather austere 1960s .

Nowadays this level of attention is termed ‘bespoke’ – here we see an example of this taking place over 50 years ago !

Whilst original Avon Cliff keyrings are very distinctive and easily recognisable their name was not always cast into the back of the keyfob badge – ‘Avon Cliff’ is clearly cast into the back of the badge on this keyring.

This keyring is an exceptionally good example of a scarce original Citroen keyring which will be original & correct for use with any 1960s Citroen motor car .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO  00/59    05/24
