If this keyring was in mint condition then it would be worth a lot more than the asking price shown here.
Having said that we do know from long experience that it is not every customer who seeks perfection in a vintage keyring – many prefer that the keyring looks as though it has ‘had a life ‘ .
This one obviously fulfils that criteria and has almost certainly dangled from the ignition of a Jaguar motor car and accompanied it’s former owner for many thousands of miles.
The vitreous enamel badge has a large enamel chip which we have gone to great pains to photograph – which has resulted in a photo which makes it look a lot worse than it is !
The badge is mounted onto a genuine leather keyfob which is in serviceable condition but is very well worn in like a comfortable pair of shoes.
This keyring was made by Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham .
Examples of this keyring are shown in Bud Marston’s ‘Vintage Jaguar Keyrings’ book featured at the beginning of the Jaguar section here in this website shop.
Bud states that despite the keyring probably having been produced in considerable quantity in the 1960s & 1970s this keyring is difficult to locate nowadays.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/56
