Three nice individual examples of hand forged keys dating from the mid to late 18th century , circa 1740-1780. Each key has been expertly formed by a period smith with some nice variation to each, making all examples slightly unique in there own.

Large format keys such as this were commonly paired with large door and gate locks, many associate them with the large box locks used on heavy scale jailer locks of the period.

As mentioned there is some slight variation of the design of each (see photographs), some slight rust from age but overall each is solid.

This over sized examples make for perfect items for the iron or key collector.

The trio is offered for a period of one week with no reserve.
