Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Jaguar – original vintage new old stock 1970s black/ochre border ‘winking’ growler keyring – collector’s item

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

An original vintage Jaguar keyring which will have been produced in the 1970s.

When this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

A rare 40 + year old Jaguar keyring in new old stock condition- so far as we can remember this is the only original example of this keyring which we have ever listed apart from one remounted original badge which was sold some time ago.

The badge on this keyring is not to be confused with a later version of the badge which was produced at a later stage – but that badge is in acrylic resin rather than the vitreous enamel which the badge on this keyring has been produced in – and has a smooth polished back whereas this badge has a stippled design on the back together with ‘ BRITISH MADE’ .

A keyring with that later acrylic badge is offered in a separate listing here in this website shop ( unless now sold )

The nickel plated vitreous enamel badge is mounted onto a faux leather keyfob and the keyring is in brand new condition.

Examples of this keyring are shown & described in Bud Marston’s Vintage Jaguar keyrings book which is featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section in this website shop.

Bud dates the keyrings 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 in to say that badges with this ‘anomaly’ carry no maker’s mark – as is the case with this badge which is simply marked ‘BRITISH MADE’ .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO    00/523      08/21
