NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We have just this one example to offer of this original vintage Jaguar keyring which dates from the 1960s.
This keyring is in very good condition considering it’s age and is offered at a price which is less than half of the price which virtually identical keyrings have recently been listed on ebay at !
Made at the time by Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham – their details are cast into the back of the badge and their keyflix brand name is embossed into the leather keyfob beneath the badge.
In the 1960s Melsom Products made keyrings for most makes of car ( British, American & European ) and these were exported worldwide – it was quite an industry.
The badge is in jewellery grade vitreous enamel on chrome and is mounted onto a genuine tan leather keyfob which is well worn in and does have a couple of ( ink ? ) stains.
A top quality British made product made at a time when manufacturing standards of many products were beginning to decline rapidly.
Original & correct for use with any Jaguar motor car of the period – how many of those cars remaining will now be driven with a completely original keyring like this one ?
These are the actual keyrings that the cars were being used with at the time.
Identical examples are photographed and described in Bud Marston’s ‘Vintage Jaguar keyrings’ book featured at the beginning of the Jaguar section here in this website shop.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When this keyring has been sold this listing will cancel. 00/59 05/20
