NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This keyring has an original badge which is offered remounted onto a new leather keyfob – it must not be confused with a completely original Coombs keyring like the one shown as a reference item .
Our original Coombs keyring can be seen here in this Jaguar section of our website shop as a reference only item together with the full description of the Coombs of Guildford keyring which is not repeated here.
That keyring is one of only 2 original examples which we have ever seen and is not being offered for sale.
In addition to those 2 keyrings we have also gathered together 3 loose badges over the years – 2 made by J.Fray of Birmingham and the other made by Caxton of Kew.
The keyring offered here for sale in this listing has the badge made by Caxton of Kew mounted onto it.
The badge is in exceptionally good condition as can be seen from the photos- some very slight wear to the nickel plating on the most exposed upper faces of the plated design as can be seen in the high resolution enlarged photos in the listing. Hardly noticeable when viewed at life size.
We have gone to considerable effort to remount this badge onto a keyfob as close to the original one as we can manage.
The leather used for the original was black hair cell leather which we have replicated with new black hair cell leather and have skived it to exactly the same thickness.
The original ‘peardrop’ keyfob shape has been closely followed and we have even used vintage linen thread of the correct natural colour & thickness which will be as old as the badge itself for handstitching the leather.
Quite a proportion of our work involves remounting customer’s original keyfob badges onto new leather keyfobs .
This remounted Coombs badge keyring is about as close to the original as it is possible to get and is available at a fraction of the value of the original.
When this keyring with original badge made by Caxton of Kew has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/592
