Porsche – original vintage 1970s acrylic badge keyring in genuine tan leather – collector’s item

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

An original Porsche keyring which will have been produced in the 1970s .

When this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

An original Porsche keyring similar to those made by Renamel Ltd of Kilburn High Road, London .

This keyring is in really excellent condition with an acrylic dome badge mounted onto a keyfob in genuine tan leather ( Renamel invariably only used imitation leather )

‘TOP GRAIN LEATHER‘ is gold embossed onto the back of the keyfob together with what appears to be ‘Fine‘ – although the gold emboss has worn so this is difficult to read .

Interestingly the leather edge of the keyfob has been marked to appear as stitching – but the keyring is not stitched – it is bonded together .

We have seen this rather strange decorative arrangement on other leather keyrings of the period.

Renamel were the first manufacturer to make keyrings with these acrylic badges which have lasted very well over the years and do have the advantage over the more traditional vitreous enamel badges in that they do not chip if dropped onto a hard concrete floor !

Other manufacturers then followed suit although they seldom marked their keyrings with their name ( This keyring was not made by Renamel )

This keyring will be original & correct for use with any 1970s Porsche motor car and the Porsche crest on the badge is represented with the top strip in white which is correct for cars up until 1973 – in the case of the 911 this coincides with the change over to impact bumpers .

Having said that – car keyring manufacturers at the time were not too concerned about date correctness – and we have seen Porsche badges with white top strips still being offered into the 1980s .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive . SMOSO   00/531    04/22
