Seller: popper77 (8,509) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Sammamish, Washington, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381283052791 This is a Massive Antique English Cast Iron Lock & Key.At the time of the original listing, we are in the process of listing a large number of antique and vintage items purchased in England. These items are an eclectic mix including gold and sterling jewelry, and many unique, and in some cases, one of a kind items, in wood, brass, and iron, and other materials as well.This is one of a number of items we purchased in England that were sold by French lady who traveled to England to sell at a large antique fair. The French items we purchased included four graniteware lunch pails, an enameled cast iron trivet, an art deco ceiling lighting fixture, and an antique wall lighting fixture. We do not know the age nor provenance of this wonderful old lock and key specifically, but I found a couple of other examples of similar pieces that were speculated as being from a church door, castle door, or simlar. In any case, it certainly seems that with it huge size, it must have been from a very substantial door consistent with those attributions.The lock is mounted in heavy wood. I thought perhaps it is architectural salvage cut from a door but, if so, three sides were planed and finished in a uniform manner. This is speculation and I do not have any specific knowledge in that regard. The overall maximum dimensions of the unit including the wood ar 8 7/8" long x 5 5/8" high x 1 1/2" thick. It weighs just over 2 1/2 pounds and it has a nice heavy feel. The large key is 5" long. It weighs 87 grams (about 3 ounces), and it has a very nice heavy feel.These are very substantial pieces. The pair together weighs just under three pounds. The overall maximum dimensions are 16" wide x 6" tall. The hangers are 7/16" thick (just under half an inch). The iron is painted gloss black as seen.Condition: The piece is in excellent condition, and the wood has a beautiful patina of age. I do not know specifically what type of wood it is. The lock is in good working order. You can see the lock in the locked and unlocked position in a pair of the photos.
