Lotus -original vintage late1960s/ 1970s keyring – with some damage to the badge

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

An original  Lotus keyring which will have been produced in the 1960s .

We have just this one example to offer – when this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

This keyring is in very good serviceable condition with a vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a keyfob in genuine black leather with a pronounced grain .

However the badge does have some enamel chipping at 5 o’clock on the face of the badge and some of the nickel plating has worn through to the base metal .

All of this can be seen in the enlarged high resolution photos .

Not all keyrings survive for 50 years in perfect condition – particularly if they have seen some use !

‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ marked on the back of the badge – but no maker’s name .

In the 1960s there were many producers of car keyrings in the 1960s ( many of them being very small concerns and almost all of them based in England )

At that time almost all keyrings for the world’s cars were produced in England – it was quite an industry.

The details and identities of these small badgemakers & leatherworkers have sadly become lost in time and are unlikely to surface in the future having never been properly recorded and are now probably lost forever .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive and is original & correct for use with any 1960s or 1970s Lotus motor car . SMOSO  00/54   12/22
