One of the oldest written documentations of an ancient lock was provided by Italian architect Joseph Bonomi (1739-1808). In his works he describes a lock found at the Palace of Sargon (part of the Assyrian Empire of the 700’s BC). The lock described is similar to 4000 year old Egyptian locks that have been found.
Our private collection of antique locks and collectibles is not quite this old, however we are very proud of our sizable collection and have decided to use our website to share just a handful of our favorite and interesting pieces.
The collection has been built up over the entirety of the carers of our staff. For more information on the history of our company please click here.
