ANTIQUE PADLOCK 1837-1901,CROWN, VR, A. THOMPSON


Description

An extremely interesting WORKING padlock dating from the period 1837-1901with key. Imprinted on the keyhole cover is the CROWN OF ENGLAND, VR- which probably stands for VICTORIA REGINA (QUEEN VICTORIA) and the name A. THOMPSON. The key is so unique that it is probably original. In my research it appears that the lock could have been a jailer padlock or a smokehouse shed padlock. The case measures about 4” x 4” x 1”thick. If you include the clasp bar, itis 5 1/2” high. Great example of a very early padlock, complete with key, in excellent working condition. (TBEDDE) List Price: $275
