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 is an historic original vintage Jaguar keyring which was  manufactured over 40 years ago and this keyring is intended to be used with classic Jaguar motor cars- or to be bought for including in a collection of vintage Jaguar keyrings.

A very rare 40 years old + Jaguar keyring and 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 over the last 10 years- apart from one remounted original badge which was sold last year.

( Not to be confused with a later version of this badge which was produced at a later stage – but that is in acrylic resin rather than vitreous enamel and has a smooth polished back- a keyring with the later 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 new condition – it does not appear to have ever been used.

Examples of this keyring are shown & described in Bud Marston’s ‘Vintage Jaguar keyrings’ book 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 on to say that badges with this ‘anomaly’ carry no maker’s mark – as in the case of this badge which is simply marked ‘British Made’.

Due to the greatly increased interest in original vintage Jaguar keyrings over the last 2 or 3 years it has now become almost impossible for us to source examples of keyrings like this one to offer here in this website shop.

To have an original Jaguar keyring in this condition to offer has become a very rare occasion.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.

When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
