Ten (1) small steel keys, sized from 1” to 1 ½” , three are English Cheney, very clean, NO damage, most were for steamer trunks.
See photos they are included as part of the description.
These are original antique keys, not reproductions or fake look alikes made in India or China.
The first known use of skeleton keys was 1810. The skeleton key is a key with a large part of the bit filed away to enable it to open low quality locks as a master key. Many flat keys or push keys are skeleton keys.
Barrel keys are for cabinet and furniture locks. The small 1”-2” barrel keys are known as box keys. These were for most small storage, clock cases, jewelry and cabinet wood boxes. It is hard to find good ones that are not damaged. I have a good selection of all of the above key types listed. To be classified as Antique keys they must be over 100 years old.
