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 around 50 years ago and this keyring with this badge mounted onto it is intended to be used with classic Jaguar motor cars.

We have been very fortunate to acquire a small quantity of these original vintage Jaguar vitreous enamel keyfob badges dating from the 1960s which were produced by the well respected firm of Manhattan in Birmingham ( sadly now closed )

These enamel badges were produced in the early 1960s but were never mounted onto leather keyfobs at the time.

They feature the iconic Jaguar ‘Growler’ mask with red enamel eyes and mouth upon the black & white chequerboard ground.

This design carried forward to represent the Jaguar E-Type but the ‘E-Type ‘ legend is absent from these particular badges.
The reverse of the enamel badges is marked ‘Manhattan  – Made In England’

Jaguar authorities we have consulted are of the opinion that these badges were produced in the time slot between XK150 & E-Type.

After 50 years in storage the original plating had become dull so the enamel badges have been repolished by our badgemaker in Birmingham.

The badge quality is very good & in line with the quality expected of 50 year old vitreous enamel badges – but cannot be compared to the quality which we now achieve with our new reproduction vitreous enamel badges.

We are offering the badges mounted onto our slimline teardrop and classic rectangular keyfobs in full grain black leather as shown in the photos.

When all these badges have been mounted & sold – then sadly this listing will be cancelled .

Almost certainly – we will never find stocks of these badges to offer again.
