 "SOLD" Thank you,Minnesota 
This unusual 19thC combination lock is a wonderful example of Chinese ingenuity.If you collect Oriental locks,this one is a must for your collection,a conversation piece to say the least.Unfortunately,the combination is not available.Condition is good with above average wear due to usage&handling. Circa:Qing Dynasty,Mid-19thC Doaguang Period(1821-1850)Size:25/8"in length.Please note the photo enlargements to see the outstanding workmanship and attention to detail of this fine piece of Chinese metalwork. A rare find for the astute collector.
