The R100 was a pioneering airship designed by Barnes Wallace who later went on to create the ‘bouncing bomb’ used in the famous dambusters raid of WW2. It was built by Vickers Armstrongs. The R100 made it’s first flight in 1929. It made a series of trial flights and flew the Atlantic in August 1930. It was intended to be used on British Empire routes to effectively tie the Empire together under the name of the Imperial Airship scheme. After the crash of the R101 the R100 was scrapped.


This airship fabric stamped on the back as above is a historic piece of aviation history especially so with it’s connections with Barnes Wallace and it’s taken us a long time to find a metal keyring substantial enough to be able to incorporate the fabric in it’s body  - it was no easy matter. We have assiduosly collected historic material over twenty years of living in France and the UK and the price does not reflect in any way the time and effort put into finding the material. It’s an attempt to create meaning and worth in our pieces.
