NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This keyring is offered with an original Maserati vitreous enamel badge which dates from the 1960s.
The badge is in excellent condition and is offered mounted onto one of our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain black hide as can be seen in the photos.
These badges were made in Birmingham at the time as were almost all keyfob badges and keyrings for the world’s cars – it was quite an industry.
An identical badge ( we listed and sold a similar keyring earlier this year ) to the one which is mounted onto this keyfob is shown next to one of our later vitreous enamel badges in the listing photos.
The smaller 1960s badge is shown on the right hand side and it can be seen that it is slightly smaller than the later badges- and whilst the enamel is in perfect condition it does look more ‘aged’ and ‘period’ than the later badges. These earlier badges had hand-laid enamel and just cannot be reproduced or copied by the modern processes employed nowadays.
A delightful little ‘jewel’of a badge which is already almost 50 years old and can now be used for another 50 years mounted securely onto a substantial new leather keyfob.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/57 11/20
