Object detail

Credit line
This ornate lock is unfortunately missing its key, but is still a solid piece of metalworking. It is easy to imagine this lock protecting an impressive front door or perhaps a garden gate, but this is one of many objects in the Puke Ariki collection where it is impossible to know for certain.
