NOW SOLD – but we have left this rare keyring on view for those who may be interested to see an example of an original 1950s Opel keyring.
What a wonderful little thing – and the only one which we have ever seen !
Probably the only survivor in this almost brand new condition.
The keyring has a convex vitreous enamel on gilt badge ( we are told that a badge like this cannot be made as the enamel will run off the convex badge surface during firing !)
The badge is inlaid into a genuine leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos.
The only fault which can be levelled is that the little plated buckle has some surface rust.
Having occasionally seen similar items for other makes of car we would date this keyring as having been made during the period 1955 – 1960 and as such would be correct for use with Opel Kapitan and Rekord motor cars.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will cancel. 59/43 01/20
