This antique reproduction heart padlock really appeals to me even though I’m not sure what I’d use it for. Quirky and with a substantial period feel, it functions well as a padlock, although I wouldn’t rely on it to be a real security measure in the face of determined burglars. Perhaps it would be fun to use as a decorative lock on a chest or treasure box, or as a mild security precaution on a donation or gift box at a special event or a wedding.
The heart padlock measures 5” x 3” x3/4 “, is made of sturdy metal and some may have a slightly rusted finish. Antique Reproduction Heart Padlock with 2 Skeleton Keys costs $19.95 from Amazon.
