This vitreous enamel keyfob badge is an exact reproduction of original early 1960s Triumph world key fob badges which are held in our reference collection.
A couple of original examples can be seen on the ‘examples of original keyrings’ page of the GALLERY on this website.
A regular customer located in Bavaria (Germany) provided the inspiration for us to produce this keyring – together with many requests from others at exhibitions.
This customer’s brother has a TR3 which had globes on the wheel hub caps.
He changed to wire wheels and was sad to lose the globes – but now has a Triumph globe hanging from the dashboard instead !
Pre-war Triumphs had a globe badge until 1935 & then the TR2 featured a version of it on the bonnet & also on the hub caps.
The TR3, TR4, 2000 & 1300 all used the globe badge, with the TR4A being the final Triumph to display the badge.
The original Triumph World badge represented the land mass with a red colour and the sea with a blue colour.
Many originals were made using a blue enamel which was not colourfast – and the blue has faded to grey.
Consequently many poor reproductions of the badge represent the sea incorrectly as grey.
We are pleased to report that our reproduction of this badge is correct !
The badge is available mounted onto our teardrop, slimline teardrop and classic rectangular keyfob shapes and in all of the leather colours.
