Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Riley – original vintage 1960s Colmore Depot keyring – collector’s item


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

An original Riley keyring which will have been produced in the 1960s .

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

Colmore Depot had a couple of showrooms in Birmingham in the 1960s and one in Worcester .

They were dealers for MG & Riley but did sell other makes as well – Morris & Wolseley – also Ariel motorcycles .

This Riley keyring is a very scarce original vintage item dating from the 1960s- the only one of this design which we have ever seen although we have seen a couple of other examples but in different designs.

This keyring is in excellent condition – probably new old stock.

The badge is in vitreous enamel on chrome plate and is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine tan leather.

The badge was made by Gale Melville Ltd badgemakers of Surbiton in Surrey UK – well known badgemakers at that time.

The keyfob has Colmore Depot’s details embossed on the back in gold foil- this one from the dealership in Station Street, Birmingham.

Interestingly the keyfob incorporates a pouch behind the badge which could be used for storing a coin – probably for use in a telephone box rather than a parking meter at that time.

These keyrings would have been supplied with vehicles sold from the depots and very few of these keyrings will have survived- this particular one having some historical significance for Riley .

If it is known that your vehicle was originally bought from Colmore Depot – then this keyring will be the final cherry on the cake !

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.

When it has been sold then this listing will cancel.   SMOSO                   00/55           06/21
