Description

Our clever decorative paperweight is a large-scale reproduction of a handsome brass key in The Met collection. The original key, with its hanging tag noting "Parlour Chamber," was made in Britain or the United States in the eighteenth century.

Along with the matching lock, it is part of the trappings of the Wentworth Room, a period room installed in the American Wing at The Met. Despite its stately ornamentation, the basic design of such keys remained the same from the Roman period until technological innovations were introduced in the nineteenth century.
