A Rare Item Indeed


VERY RARE, antique (1907-1914), SPEEDWELL MOTOR COMPANY, Guilloche enamel, Gold Filled, key fob or pocket watch fob.  I have searched the internet high and low and I haven't found a single one of these ever having been available so I believe it to be a very rare item.  It is marked on the back and I believe it reads "Gold Filled".  The item is a Rose Gold color and it has guilloche enamel on the front in Green and also White enamel and it reads SPEEDWELL.  Guilloche enamel is where the metal is machine tooled before they pour the enamel.  You can see the wonderful machine tooling underneath the Green enameling.  This RARE beauty is available in my ebay listings.

The following is from Wikipedia in regards to the Speedwell Motor Co. 

The Speedwell Motor Car Company was an early United States automobile manufacturing company established by Pierce Davies Schenck that produced cars from 1907 to 1914. The company's factory rented space for the Wright Company to build its airplanes from February to November 1910 while the Wright Company built its own factory building in west Dayton.[1] The Great Dayton Flood of 1913 greatly damaged the Speedwell factory in Dayton's Edgemont neighborhood and its inventory, and the company entered receivership in 1915.  In 1911, Speedwell built a closed two-door, dubbed a sedan, which was the first recorded use of the term.[2] In England, another car was marketed under the Speedwell name from 1900 to 1908. Other than the name, the two companies are unrelated.
