An original Lambretta keyring which will have been produced in the late 1950s or early 1960s .

Just this one keyring to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

You are unlikely to see many of these keyrings !

This is a very rare example of what must be one of the very first keyrings ever produced for Lambretta .

Automotive & motorcycle/ scooter keyrings only began to appear in the mid 1950s with odd ones for odd vehicles being produced to begin with.

Manufacturing centred on England where keyrings for the world’s cars & motorcycles/scooters began to be produced – by the 1970s this had become quite an industry.

Possibly the earliest producer was Castles Unit Development Co. of Leicester ( CUD ) who went on to produce the famous torpedo keyrings.

This ‘peardrop’ keyring will probably be slightly earlier than CUD’s torpedo keyrings .

This keyring is in excellent condition with a vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a peardrop shaped keyfob in genuine black leather.

Original & correct for use with any 1950s or 1960s Lambretta .

What often happened in practice in the case of a scooter produced before keyrings appeared in general use was that the owner of the scooter bought a keyring to use with the scooter when keyrings became available .

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