Old Antique Wrought iron 3 Monumental Forged Keys, 16th / 17th Century 26cm,
Artist: Popular Art Period: 16th century Style: Haute époque-Renaissance-Louis
XIII Condition: Good condition Material: Wrought iron Length: 26cm
3 very large utility keys, which did not have beauty or finesse as their
objective, but on the contrary, indestructibility and reliability. They had to
be able to open large barn doors, storage warehouses, access doors. The forge
is massive and well made, the rods (one solid, 2 drilled) are very thick (20mm
and 16mm) the rings are taken from the piece and nicely forged at the tip of
the anvil, the bit bits are not very complicated.
Beautiful condition, no rust, for those who love forging, we can see the
stretch of the metal under the hammer, the final fade well done.
Keys from the Henri IV period, to locate them.
Dimensions: 26cm, 22cm, 20.5cm. Weight of the 3: almost 3 pounds.
