NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
Original Jaguar keyrings which will date from the 1980s – just beyond the scope of Bud Marston’s book on Vintage Jaguar keyrings which is featured at the beginning of the Jaguar section of our online shop here in this website.
These keyrings are new old stock – so are in brand new condition.
The vitreous enamel badge is mounted onto a genuine leather keyfob in light tan leather gold embossed ‘TOP GRAIN LEATHER’.
Made by Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham ( the leather keyfob is one of theirs ) but using a vitreous enamel badge which they will have bought in from another badgemaker in the Birmingham area- they sometimes did this to save the expense of having a die made for a badge which was already being fabricated by another badgemaker.
The light tan leather has been pressure printed to resemble tan pigskin – this was something which Manhattan Windsor often did with such success that we have found it very difficult to decide if this is actually genuine pigskin.
It isn’t – but is genuine leather !
One of the very last British made top quality keyrings with a genuine vitreous enamel badge and a genuine leather keyfob before keyring production was universally moved to The Far East and one of the last ‘original vintage’ Jaguar keyrings which is still available at an affordable price.
When both keyrings have been sold this listing will be cancelled. 59/93 12/20
