NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold but has been left on view as an example of an original Jawa keyring for those who may be interested.
Don’t think that you will find many of these keychains still around – it is the only example which we have ever seen in the last 10 years.
An original vitreous enamel keychain for the powerful 1950s JAWA 250/350 2 stroke motorcycle.
This model had the compact engine, and rear wheel suspension – all of which can be plainly seen in the 3D relief depiction on the back of the badge – what an image this is – giving the unmistakable message of speed & power .
In this 21st Century we do seem to have lost something as regards putting impressions across with images- just look at that bike & rider.
This Jawa 250/350 machine was so successful that it was exported to over 120 countries worldwide.
The keychain is in good condition considering its age and the use it will have had on an open motorcycle in all weathers.
The vitreous enamelling does have some chipping and has lost its surface shine as a result of constant abrasion in the owner’s pocket.
Nonetheless it is an important historical item and a must for the serious collector of Jawa memorabilia.
The keychain in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 59/94 02/20
