NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
An original Lambretta keyfob badge dating from the late 1950s or very early 1960s and only the 2nd example of this design which we have seen over the last 10 years.
The badge is in very good condition for it’s age ( this badge is around 60 years old !)
The nickel plating is in excellent condition whilst the red vitreous enamel is all there with no enamel chips ( which is unusual in a badge of this age )
The red enamel has lost it’s original high gloss and has some staining beneath the enamel which has probably been there since the badge was made.
These badges were made using hand laid enamel which varied from badge to badge and flaws commonly developed as the enamel cooled from the furnace as has happened in this case.
Doubtless the enamel badge will look much the same after another 60 years.
We are offering the badge mounted onto one of our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain black leather.
The keyring in the photos is the actual keyring which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 59/44 03/20
