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

Colmore Depot had a couple of showrooms in Birmingham in the 1960s and one in Worcester .

They were dealers for MG & Riley but did sell other makes as well – Morris & Wolseley . Also Ariel motorcycles .

This keyring is a very scarce original vintage item dating from the 1960s- the only one of this design which we have ever seen although we have seen a couple of other examples but in different designs.

It is in excellent condition having obviously received very little use.

The badge is in vitreous enamel on chrome plate and is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine full grain black leather.

The badge was made by Gale Melville Ltd badgemakers of Surbiton in Surrey UK – well known badgemakers at that time.

Interestingly the keyfob incorporates a pouch behind the badge which could be used for storing a coin – probably for use in a telephone box rather than a parking meter at that time.

These keyrings would have been supplied with vehicles sold from the depots and very few of these keyrings will have survived.

If it is known that your vehicle was originally bought from Colmore Depot – then this keyring will be the final cherry on the cake !

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

When it has been sold then this listing will cancel.  00/56       02/21
