An original Volvo badge which will have been produced in the 1960s which we have inlaid into a new keyfob in full grain black leather .

The gilt plated badge is in excellent original condition with blue vitreous enamel .

The badge came to us without the usual little metal loop on top for attaching the badge to a keyfob with a thin leather ‘hinge’ .

In that case this badge will probably have originally been intended for inlaying into the top of a gear knob.

The vitreous enamel is individually hand laid and the gilt plating has mellowed – as gilt plating always does – to result in a badge which really looks it’s age .

Being hand laid – the enamel is unevenly laid at the base of the badge and will have been like this since it was made- this can be seen in the enlarged high resolution listing photos .

Rather a nice ‘period ‘touch’ which sets the badge apart from modern mass -made resin enamel badges !

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO   00/55     03/22
