A great piece for the collector of antique and early locks. This padlock was crafted to last and has stood the test of time remarkably well.
This heart shaped lock is chunky and sturdy. It stands 3 3/4" tall, 2 3/4" at it's widest point with a 5/8" depth. The lock shackle measures 7/16" wide.
You can see oxidation to the ironwork and the brass is clean. No rot and it works perfectly. We believe we see an extremely faded maker's mark directly above the brass piece but between the oxidation and aging process we can not make it out. The lock has a nice weight to it - unpackaged weight is 9.2 oz or 261 grams.
This would be a great display piece but also can still be used on a large chain or hasp.
