A unique keyring crafted by Matt Fothergill using moquette fabric and black leather trim. Made exclusively for the London Transport Museum. They measure 10cm x 5cm.
After World War II, London Transport’s bus and coach fleet was out-dated and rather careworn after nearly 6 years of continuous conflict and the rigours of wartime service. A new fleet of coaches were ordered for London Transport’s Green Line coach services and a small fleet of Private Hire coaches were also ordered to run tours to and from the Festival of Britain at London’s South Bank in 1951. A new and very elegant moquette was commissioned for use on all London Transport’s coaches and remained in use for several years. The pattern was recently rediscovered and has been faithfully reproduced to the exact original specification.
