Description

Celtic-themed stamped leather keyfob featuring a vintage KALBE (stamped) brass lion’s head pendant. Hard to find. I secured the pendant to the keyfob with a strip of thick moosehide and nickel domed cone rivets.

I dyed the veg tan leather with forest green water-based dye and antiqued it with dark brown stain. Sealed with acrylic.

The KALBE pendant has its original finish and has not been cleaned that I know of. The pendant belonged to my step-grandfather, and I inherited it in the early 1990s after he passed. I don’t know the age of the pendant, as it is undated, but as mentioned I have had it for probably 30 years. I have worn it as a choker, suspended from a rawhide strap, many times.
