These locks from Mr and Mrs may look purely decorative, but they’re tougher than they look.
Weighing between 0.5 and 1kg (and approximately 17cm x 7cm x 3cm in size), these brass, copper and steel locks are a hefty protective addition to a vintage kist, armoire or cupboard. With fine details and equally ornate keys, the locks are also beautiful on their own as a table-top ornament.
The fish-shaped lock features a bright brassy hue and a hidden lock hole beneath its fin while the lion head lock features a green copper stain and a discreet lock hole within its mouth.
The locks are R650 and available from mrandmrs.co.za.
