L125 - Rare Brass 1854 Trunk Lock & Key


A very rare and beautiful trunk lock patented by Conrad Liebrich of Philadelphia in 1854. Liebrich made very high-quality locks in Philadelphia from the 1830's when he immigrated from Germany. This solid brass lock is ornate and has a very unique keyhole cover with a secret opening mechanism. The top hasp and lock are all made of thick brass and it weighs a little over 1 pound requiring Priority Mail postage of $8.40 which is included in the price. It has the original ornate large barrel key which works well. The original copper rivets are still in the lock, but they can be removed without much trouble and possibly reused for mounting the lock. This lock was made for a very high-quality trunk and of the 1850's but it would look great on other early trunks of the 1860's to 70's. The top hasp has built-in steel springs and there are small brass springs in the base for the sliding keyhole cover. The base is 5 1/4" wide by 3 7/8" high to the edges. The top hasp is 3 7/8" high by 4" wide to the edges. You will rarely see a lock of this quality for sale and it's the only of I've had of this type. Please see all the pictures for details.
