Vintage Skeleton Key on Ribbon, Rustic Rusty Skeleton Key, Vintage Key on New Black Ribbon for Hanging or Necklace is a fun and funky find that will bring many of us back to our childhoods.

This key came from an old coffee can full of keys in my grandmother's attic and most likely date from the 1940s. They are rustic, rusty and full of character. They are also all a little different and not all lie flat. Their little key part is sometimes at an angle, etc. so Please examine the photos.

Do you want to give someone the key to your heart? Each vintage key on a ribbon ( I have about a dozen) comes with a 3" card stock heart. There is no message--I just wrote a message so you could see the scale but you will have to write your own message. Hearts come in red, pink, ivory and white.

It wasn't that long ago when kids were given the key to the house on a ribbon to hang around their necks when they went out to play so they could get back into the house. Some wore them to school so they could get into the house after school because parents were working. All who wore them wore them with pride for there was a lot of responsibility inherent in wearing such an outward sign of trust.

Today I imagine no kids wear their keys in such an outward manner and many teens and others wear keys as part of a steampunk or goth type of statement. And let's face it, old keys are just cool and mysterious today.

This key is about 4" long and you get exactly the key pictured here tied to a new black ribbon. The ribbon is long - lands around your belly for most of us., but you can shorten it to any length you want. Wear it, hang it, swing it around like some kid probably did years ago. This is a very cool old key with some rust and a nice patina. You can clean it up or leave it as is.

I ship the day after I receive payment and I ship worldwide.
