An original Volvo badge which will have been produced in the late 1960s or early 1970s which we have inlaid into a new keyfob in full grain black leather .

The gilt plated badge is in excellent original condition with white 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 white enamel has a few specks in it which will probably have been carried over from the black enamel and what looks rather like a faint finger print in the enamel surface at 3 0’clock on the face of the badge !

All of this will have been like this since the badge was made and can be seen in the enlarged high resolution listing photos  and sets the badge apart from modern mass -made resin enamel badges !

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