Volkswagen – original vintage 1960s keyring by SCHALL – collector’s item

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

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

We have just this one keyring to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

This keyring is in excellent condition and is a very rare item – it is the only Volkswagen SCHALL keyring which we have ever listed .

The nickel plated badge mounted onto this keyring has been enamelled in coach enamel ( not the usual vitreous enamel more common at the time )

This coach enamel will have been individually and very thinly hand applied – so thinly that the underlying plating shows through in places .

The badge is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine black leather .

There is a small round cut-out in the leather hidden beneath the badge – the car registration no. could have been written there …………probably not a good idea nowadays !!

In the 1960s almost all keyrings for the world’s cars were made in England – it was quite an industry .

This particular keyring was made in England by SCHALL ( SC HALL ) who probably didn’t make many of these Volkswagen keyrings at the time – they seem to have been low volume manufacturers and we do not ever see many of their keyrings .

In that case it could probably have not been worthwhile setting up to produce a run of vitreous enamel badges and the badges were simply enamelled by hand instead .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive . SMOSO  00/521   05/24
