Massive Qing Chinese Brass Bronze Lockplate Lock Key
Very large and heavy antique brass or bronze lockplate for a Chinese wood chest, complete with lock and key. Estimated to date from the late 19th century. The lockplate measures 8 3/8" vertical by 9 3/4" horizontal. The lock is 9" long by 1 7/8" high and the key is about 12" long. Very good overall condition. I have not cleaned the lock or lockplate and have left the original significant patina intact. This set is from the private collection of American expatriates who lived in Hong Kong in the 1970s and 1980s.
