NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We are not licensed by Jaguar Land Rover Ltd to reproduce any of the recent Jaguar logos and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature any of those logos.
The keyring in this listing features an historic original vintage Jaguar keyfob badge which was manufactured over 40 years ago and this keyring with this badge mounted onto it is intended to be used with classic Jaguar motor cars.
A very rare 40 years old + vitreous enamel badge and in excellent condition – so far as we can remember this is the only original example which we have ever listed over the last 10 years.
We are offering the badge remounted onto one of our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.
Remounting original vintage 20th Century badges onto new leather keyfobs of the correct pattern so that they can continue to be used well into the 21st Century is something which we are very well known for .
Examples of original keyrings with this badge are shown & described in Bud Marston’s ‘Vintage Jaguar keyrings’ book featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section in this website shop.
Bud dates the badges to the 1970s and states that the growler is exhibiting a distinctive left-cheek snarl – here in the UK the badge has been dubbed ‘The winking Jaguar’ !
Bud carries on to say that badges with this ‘anomaly’ carry no maker’s mark – as in the case of this badge which is simply marked ‘British Made’ – a seldom read statement revealing the age of this badge !
It should be pointed out that a later version of this badge was produced – but that was in acrylic resin rather than vitreous enamel and had a smooth polished back- a keyring with the later badge is offered in a separate listing here in this website shop.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/521 01/20
