We simply adore this French Sterling Silver faceted padlock! This striking Victorian pendant is full of attitude and unlike any padlock we have seen before, formed into an icosahedron she would make a fine addition to anyone's collection.
The hinged hasp boasts a French boar's head, used from 1838, giving you assurance of quality. The padlock opens and secures tightly so you can easily attach her to a chain or charm bracelet.

VERY GOOD. This is a stunning French Sterling silver faceted padlock in very good condition. The piece has some surface wear commensurate with age, but overall she has a bright finish, with facets all intact. The hinged hasp opens with a gentle push and closes securely. The French hallmarks are still visible on the piece, making her a splendid and authentic piece for your collection!
