NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We are not licensed by Ferrari to reproduce any of their logos and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature Ferrari keyfob badges which have been made by us.
The keyring in this listing has an original Ferrari keyfob badge dating from the 1960s.
Automotive keyrings for use in motor cars were not generally available until the late 1950s and it was only in the 1960s that they became commonly used items.
At that time almost all car keyrings for the world’s cars ( including Ferrari ) were made in England – it was quite an industry.
In the early 1970s Ferrari then started to have it’s own keyrings made in Italy by Schedoni and then continued to have it’s own superb keyrings produced in many styles and materials – a Ferrari tradition which continues to this day.
Most manufacturers have not cared less about having their own keyrings produced for use in their own cars – Ferrari have led the field in this respect for many years now.
The keyring in this listing pre-dates all this as it has a badge which will have been produced in England in the 1960s .
The badge is in vitreous enamel on gilt and has to be one of the rarest Ferrari keyfob badges which we have ever listed over the last 10 years – we have never seen another example .
The hand laid vitreous enamelling on the badge is in superb condition and the prancing stallion is depicted in ‘glittering gold’ enamel.
This effect was created by clear vitreous enamel being laid over the granulated gilt ground of the badge beneath.
We have seen very few 1960s Ferrari keyrings still complete with their original leather keyfobs but one that we have in our reference collection ( not listed here in the shop ) has a thin bonded keyfob in full grain black leather gold embossed on the reverse.
Bonded leather keyfobs ( rather than stitched ) were even being used for Ferrari keyrings 50 years ago so in that case we have copied that leather keyfob faithfully and re mounted this special badge just as it would probably have been mounted all those years ago.
The splitring which we have selected has an ‘antique’ gold finish which closely resembles the gilt finish of the badge.
We are proud to offer this superb item for sale here in our website shop.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
