NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
Original Ferrari keyfob badges dating from the late 1960s are very rare items – particularly when in this condition.
In the 1960s almost all automotive keyrings and keyfob badges were made in England – it was quite an industry.
This vitreous enamel badge is in superb condition – it just couldn’t be bettered – and it is 50 years old !
The vitreous enamel will have been hand laid with each enamel colour having to be fired in the furnace and then cooled separately before the next colour could be added – that’s 4 firings and coolings just for this one badge although obviously several badges would have been made together.
A special badge like this deserves a special mounting – so we have mounted it onto a new keyfob in black oak bark tanned hide which is the best grade of hide available to us.
We have become very well known for remounting original 20th Century keyfob badges onto new leather keyfobs of the correct pattern to allow the badges to continue in use well into this 21st Century.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled – and don’t expect to see another one like this one in this condition to be listed anytime soon ! 00/541 07/20
