Sorry – this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This original Jaguar standing wings keyfob badge dates from the mid to late 1950s and is in exceptionally good condition.
The gilt badge has black vitreous enamel detail and is bonded onto a nickel plated shield.
As is often the case with a 60+ year old badge – the original leather fob was beyond repair after 60+ years of service – so we are offering the badge mounted onto a new leather keyfob in black full grain leather as can be seen in the photos.
We have seen just a few examples of these badges over the years – one of them is shown remounted in Bud Marston’s book – Vintage Jaguar Keyrings together with other examples still mounted onto their original keyfobs .
This is a superb example of an original early Jaguar keyfob badge now remounted sensitively but robustly – and one of the few vintage keyrings which could now be put into daily use without fear of spoiling. In fact using the keyring can only improve the appearance as the leather will begin to take on a patina which can only develop with a combination of use and the passage of time.
In early January 2019 we listed a similar Jaguar standing wings remounted shield badge.
That keyring sold and we are now offering this one – when this one sells we do not currently have any more of these original badges to offer.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/523 ( 00/572 )
