Item Code: 1184-344

This is a large iron padlock that was excavated near Orange, Virginia.

Measures 4.5” high, 3.5” wide and 1” wide.

Iron is pitted and rusty as to be expected of any “dug” relic, but remains stable. A large brass key hole cover is on the front and has a perfect brown patina. Stamped into this is a crown over “VR” over “A. THOMPSON”.

Abraham Thompson’s firm was established in 1831 to manufacture various types of padlocks and latches for home and export. From 1851 to 1861 they were located at 28 Temple Bar, Willenhall, England.   [jet] [ph:L]
