Vaughtons,
16 Well Street,
Birmingham,
B19 3BJ

The company is located on the northern edge of the Birmingham Jewelery Quarter.

The company repaired my bonnet badge, and made a new badge for the gear stick.

A Google search will take you to their web site.

Hope you find this useful,

Or you could try the firm that made them back in the day for Lotus, Fattorini. They are still in business.

Their web site is: https://fattorini.co.uk/

Edit: I contacted the firm and got this reply - "Fattorini and Sons were for many years, a separate company from Thomas Fattorini Ltd (2 brothers had a falling out). TF bought the remnants of F&S in the 1980s and at that time many of their original dies, tools and records were lost or destroyed."
