Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
My best guess is that this is from the 1960's as most of the items at the estate sale were from that time frame but it may be earlier than that.
This jumbo sized key measures about 13 inches in length. The head of the key measures about 5 inches across at the widest point.
Measurements are approximate.
This key is quite ornamental in style. Part of the motif almost looks like an S to my eyes. Perhaps an initial inspired design or maybe S is for Skeleton?
It has a very dark black brown color to it.
Not sure what kind of metal this was rendered from when it was originally made, but it has a substantial weight to it. I did the magnet test and it did stick.
The key itself weighs in at around 3 pounds on it's own.
Certainly with it's size and decorative style this can be a statement piece in your home or office.
Perhaps, might even be nice to use it as a Halloween prop for that key to the dungeon door.
I displayed it hanging on a wall to give you an idea of how it might look, but you will need your own hardware to hang it up.
No bad smells or odors.
I dry dusted this off, but it could use a better cleaning which I will leave up to the new owner.
There is chipping, scratches, rusting and patina from being used and stored over the years. Any cleaning or restoration will be left up to the new owners. Some of the the outside color has worn off.
Would blend nicely with an industrial look or your rustic decor.
Or you can repurpose it to fit your own needs.
Please see all the pictures for better detail. Pardon glare from camera flash.
