  • 1880s Metal Locks

    There is only 1 item left in stock.
    This item consists of three 1880s Metal Locks.  All three locks have the same design: a tongue-shaped base, an L-shaped keyhole, and a simple lock mechanism with a rectangular bolt on the flat side.  Each measures 2" high by 2.25" wide by 0.375" thick and has a patent date and reissue date (from 1881 to 1889) stamped on the front.  The locks are made from a deep gray metal with gold-tone coated backs.  There is one hole for attachment.  Maker is unknown.  These 1880s Metal Locks are in good condition, particularly given their age.  Each has a crack along one seam and some minor surface rust.  There are no keys.  Ideal for assemblage or other art project.
