    Default Chubb Patent Padlock

    Hi all.just received this beautiful Chubb patent padlock.serial number 1135152 which I believe dates it to the 1880s....it is in good working condition but not the original key...it's a thing of beauty ..measurements are height 99 mm width 65 mm depth is 32 mm (body is 25 mm without the eschuteon.my scales only measure at 500 grams and the padlock reaches that limit so it weighs more than 500 grams...I am genuinely rapt with the condition of the item and can't wait to receive it's bigger brother..

    I have also just purchased what was advertised as an all brass 19th century prison lock...captured my attention because I noticed the faded Chubb emblem which I think is made out of copper...I can just make out that it says queen Victoria St etc.apparently it measures 13 cm by 13 cm and weighs 1.5 kg.. the number on the stopper ,is hard to read but as far as I can tell reads 1187007....again it's missing the key and the knob? or handle...will post pics when it arrives ,suffice to say , ,,, I'm really excited to learn more about it...I will post some crude pics for now ,cos computers and I don't get along that well lol.

    Nothing to do with a Prison IMO. Brass cased rim deadlock, single sided action usually for a storeroom or similar.
