Jaguar – original 1960s vitreous enamel red growler badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob

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

An original Jaguar keyfob badge which will have been manufactured in the mid 1960s which we have remounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos.

We have just this one keyring with this badge to offer – when this keyring with this badge has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

This vitreous enamel badge is in excellent condition – the enamel is completely intact whilst there is no loss of the nickel plating at all .

In the 1960s the vitreous enamel was generally individually hand laid often resulting in a slightly uneven ‘ bobbly’ surface to the enamel – when viewed edge on into the light this effect can be seen on the enamel in this badge – a rather attractive ‘vintage’ feature .

These original badges in this condition are scarce items .

This badge will have been made in Birmingham in the mid 1960s by one of the smaller badgemakers – there were quite a few of them operating at the time.

An example of this badge is shown & in Bud Marston’s Vintage Jaguar keyrings book featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section in this website shop .

It is actually Bud who originally described these badges as ‘ red growlers ‘ .

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