Dating from around 1890 with a lovely aged patina with little surface rust. This one of many keys we collected over the years meaning to use in some interior design idea. We used to visit an old English pub tucked away in the Devon countryside which had every ancient beam festooned with keys like this. Fascinated by this we started to collect them ourselves.
We have 10 identical keys, vintage stock from an ancient blacksmith store.
The last photo is of the cookie tin full of keys from this old English blacksmith store, it had been closed for decades and fallen into ruin.
Measuring just 2 & 1/8 inches long , weight 7.4 grams.
