Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Maserati – original 1960s vitreous enamel keyfob badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob in tan pigskin leather

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

An original Maserati keyfob badge which will have been produced in the 1960s which we have remounted onto a new pigskin leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos.

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

A superb vitreous enamel Maserati keyfob badge which came to us still mounted onto it’s original leather keyfob but sadly that original keyfob was in a very worn condition so the badge had to be remounted onto a new keyfob .

The nickel plated badge has ‘MADE IN BRITAIN’ cast into the reverse ( how often do you read this statement nowadays ? ) – in the 1960s almost all automotive keyrings for the world’s cars were made in England – it was quite an industry .

We have listed several examples of this particular badge over the years and this one is the best example which we have ever listed .

We have remounted the badge onto a new keyfob in tan pigskin leather – pigskin leather was ( and is ) a luxurious material sometimes used for keyfobs ( usually for prestige cars ) in the 1960s.

It was always expensive and was prized for it’s appearance and hard wearing characteristics and was ideal for keyfobs which do receive a lot of handling .

Pigskin leather seems to be a thing of the past and very difficult to find in the grade needed for making keyfobs – the material which we have was sourced from a closed Midlands factory which had been using it for covering hip flasks and making wallets and keyrings .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO  00/571   02/22
