In a previous career we actually lived like nomads.  Almost forty years and six countries.  As it happened there are still a box or two suddenly popping up that has never been opened since packed.  Add to that boxes coming into the collection from deceased parents and one starts feeling like a compulsive collector without any purpose.  My wife opened one such box that came our way from her late mother’s side.  Amongst the discoveries was this padlock.  No key was found, but what amazed me is the age.  Take careful note it was not “Made in England” as we see nowadays, is “British made”.

Ancient lock

Enjoy a pleasant evening.
