Description

The increased use of locks on doors, coffrets, and chests is thought to have arisen from the new emphasis on material wealth and private property that developed in the late Middle Ages.

By the Gothic period, locks and keys were elevated to objects of beauty, worthy of elaborate decoration. Drawing from architecture, skilled craftspeople adorned locks and keys with intricate tracery work and even miniature statuettes well into the Renaissance period.

Our pendant necklace suggests the superb metalwork of a 16th- or 17th-century wrought-iron key, probably from Italy and now in The Met collection.
