Mark us as a favorite seller to get new listings immediately! CLEARANCE! Was $499.00 Description: ULTRA RARE FIND! This would make a fantastic necklace! Very rare key shaped stamp shaped like a skeleton key. Measures about 71mm long x 27mm wide at the key bit (lower) area and 27mm at the bow (round top). A similar key was recently used by the New York Metropolitan Museum as a design for a sterling silver brooch. This bronze pintadeira key is from around the 15th C. Devices like this were used in medieval times for marking baked goods like bread, after being heated. Only a handful are known to exist and they have been documented by the Cultural Heritage Center of Portugal. This pintadeira was found near Portimão Portugal. It originates from a professional antiquities dealer in London, England. It will be supplied with a letter noting the authenticity. See picture(s) for condition specifics before biding or buying. Used antique or vintage condition and unless otherwise noted. Condition (Read before bidding) As always (unless otherwise noted in the description), used keys may have varying degrees of antiquating, including rust, slight bends, tarnish, pitting, bent or missing teeth, small or micro cracks, old tape material, etc. All dating of keys is estimated since keys can be reproduced at any time. Key length sizes are sometimes rounded off to the nearest 1/16 to 1/8 inches. All keys from a smoke free environment. Non-key items used in pictures for display, backgrounds and measurements not included or available for sale unless otherwise noted in the description. Keys are generally not cleaned to maintain antique nature. All keys seen are steel, iron or other non-brass metals unless otherwise noted. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!

Seller nor Pay Pal will issue refunds for theft or loss once an item is recorded as delivered. Damaged items will require postal investigation and processing before any refund. Other Terms Clock and general key fitting and sizing I do not suggest purchasing any key as a replacement unless you know the key will fit. The problem with older keys and locks is that the mechanisms and keys often change due to wear. In addition, key measurements can vary greatly due to small differences in bit cuts, depth, shaft diameter and sizing due to metric vs. US standards. My square end keys, including clock keys are sized by metric standards. Although I accept returns, the cost of returning a key purchased on size speculation is generally not worth the cost. I suggest consulting a locksmith to confirm lock / key fitting. Refunds I will gladly refund any purchase if you are not 100% happy. Contact me first and I will be happy to assist you with any problem. Please note that all returns must be postmarked within the allowed return period Please include all items received.

No refunds will be granted for item(s) purchased for temporary or rental use, including photography, events, displays, theater, props, etc. Refunds due to lost or damaged items We will be happy to refund items that were insured and lost or damaged in transit. However, PayPal and US Postal regulations require the receiver to file a lost or damaged claim with your post office as soon as possible and/or respond to any inquiries. We cannot issue any refund until a claim is filed and a copy of the claim is sent to us. Once we receive a refund from the USPS we will issue your refund. International shipments are not insured unless requested. Seller is only responsible for proof of delivery to your location. In the event of theft after confirmed delivery, the buyer assumes all responsibility. Sales outside of ebay WARNING! eBay reads private communications between buyers and sellers. We do not accept offers to sell “listed items” outside of eBay, so please do not ask as you may risk having your account closed. Packing Groups or sets of keys are generally shipped together in a tightly wrapped plastic bag. It has been my experience that keys are not seriously damaged when packed as a tight group. Valuable keys or single keys are usually packed individually. Special packing is available upon request, but large groups of common keys cannot be packed individually due to time restraints and postal box size and weight limits. Feedback Please remember shipping delays, shipping costs and other issues are generally beyond my control. Although I try to inspect every key, some may have defects I honestly missed. In such cases I will refund your payment and pay for return shipping. Please remember this when leaving feedback. I will be happy to correct any issue. Please allow up to 30 days for feedback as we must honor the return period in addition to normal processing time. Copyright All pictures are Copyrighted. Do not copy. All images watermarked.
