Rare Stunning Massive Antique Key, Steel Forged By Hand, 16th/17th Century For Sale

Rare Stunning Massive Antique Key, Steel Forged By Hand, 16th/17th Century

This is the most extraordinary key I have come across, very very old, 17th, possibly 16th century. It is very thick and you can see in the metal in the 4th picture of the handle the way it was hand forged by folding and beating the metal into shape. It is extremely ornate and I would guess was to fit a chest with a very complex lock - perhaps one used as a strong box to store or maybe to transport valuables. It has a strange depression in the top which, on examination appears to have been done when it was being forged under heat, rather than by striking it later when cold. This might have been to hold the key in the lock until it was quite forcibly extracted. It weighs in at over 350gms and is 15cm in length with a bore of over 1cm inside diameter and it is in stunning condition - one reason why I feel this was always an indoor key and has never been exposed to the elements.
