Vespa – new black vitreous enamel badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob

NOW SOLD – sorry – both of these keyrings have now been sold and can no longer be ordered

Two new vitreous enamel Vespa keyfob badges which will have been produced in Birmingham within the last few years which we have mounted onto new leather keyfobs .

These are not original vintage badges – they will have been produced just a few years ago and are not to be confused with original vintage badges from the 1970s – these badges were made much later.

We have just two keyrings with this badge to offer  – when both have been sold this listing will be cancelled.

Superb quality ‘old school’ vitreous enamel badges like these were produced in Birmingham  – probably from the original 1970s badge dies – and were available up until quite recently .

We have remounted both badges onto new leather keyfobs in black saddlery hide.

Sadly vitreous enamel badges like these are apparently no longer produced in England .

These badges are identical to the original keyfob badges which were produced in the 1970s – but these badges are not  original 1970s badges, they were produced much later .

These badges were known as ‘drop badges ‘ – like a drop of liquid .

New reproduction badges will now usually be produced in modern resin based enamel – not vitreous enamel like this one – and they are most unlikely to have been made in England .

Maybe one day in the future beautiful quality vitreous enamel badges like these will once again be made in England ……………………..but the areas where the workshops once stood have now generally been built over with housing estates and the craftsmen with their knowledge and skills have gone .
