collection of padlocks with these two vintage locks. Both appear
to be made of brass, and are fully functional with their keys.

Because of their simple, practical function,
padlocks developed their basic shape of lock body, shackle,
and key early on. Padlocks reflect large variations in design
and technology, making them an important part of our technological
history. Through decoration and choice of materials, the lock
body and shackle can be adapted for different aesthetic and
The Yale lock measures 3 1/2 inches
long closed, while the push key lock is slightly smaller at
3 inches. Together, the locks and their keys weigh 1 pound,
These locks are well worn, but are
in very good mechanical shape and the keys fit easily. Obviously,
with items of this type and age there will be the normal tarnish
and signs of use, which does include scrapes and scuffs. This
only adds to the vintage look and feel of the items, however.
This lot of 2 classic locks is a great
addition to anyone's padlock collection.
