The case of the curious keyring...you may well ask...or...with a little luck and a fair breeze shall ye tell also! (Curious!?. ..as I know very little of its history before its making my acquaintance some twenty years or so ago) Nestled away in a box in a cupboard in a shed in a far off place that rarely sees the light of day it beckons me from time to time and now is one of those very rare times when its done just that and I got it out to show it off yet again!
It appears to be clear lacquer over red enamel on a plated brass with the flyng horse appearing gold on a brilliant red background.
I have no idea of its date of release but would expect it to be at least pre 70's ... it just feels like it! Anybody seen one before?...Anybody got one?..Anybody know anything about it at all?!?

    Looks like the Mobilgas Pegasus horse.... not exactly, but close. That's the only thing I can think of.

    yes,thanks for writing stefdesign. im pretty sure it is too. though it is different to most. ive never seen a gold one like so,and it also faces the opposite direction. i have been told many years ago that there were only a hand full made,but would really like to know more. if anyone could help,please write to me. thanks!
