SMGP-496 KRIT Motor Car Key FOB *SOLD


Out of stock


Well, it’s not Nazi related, but it is a rare piece of automotive history! Appears to be a copper base metal with a Chrome finish. Enamel inlay. You can see wear evident where the eyelet is where the attachment device would be.

The emblem of the cars was a swastika. Krit occupied two different sites during its history: the first one it took over from the Blomstrom car, and in 1911 moved to the works that had been used by R. M. Owen & Company who had moved to become Owen Magnetic. The cars were conventional 4-cylinder models and many were exported to Europe and Australia. The outbreak of World War I seriously damaged the company and it failed in 1915. A few cars were subsequently assembled from remaining parts.
In 1911 the KRIT Motor Company was purchased by Walter S Russel of the Russel Wheel and Foundry Company.
