NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
Certainly the most ambitious Riley keyring which we have ever listed – and possibly the best one as well !
This original blue diamond badge came to us still mounted onto the mortal remains of it’s original tan pigskin torpedo keyfob .
The vitreous enamel badge was in very good condition ( apart from having lost it’s original high gloss finish ) but the pigskin keyfob was well past any chance of repair.
In that case we have set to and remounted the badge onto a new torpedo keyfob in the original tan pigskin so that it is now ready for another 50 years of service.
The genuine pigskin that we use is already almost as old as the badge itself – pigskin of this quality seems unavailable nowadays and this vintage pigskin took some tracking down.
We generally use it for remounting original Aston Martin keyfob badges as Aston Martin were one of the very few manufacturers who used pigskin for their keyfobs.
We have become very well known for remounting original 20th Century badges like this one onto new leather keyfobs of the correct pattern so that the badge can continue to be used well into the 21st Century.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 59/94 07/20
