These keys are all metal and I suspect the ornate one may wind an old clock. the other two I don't know what they fit. The small one is brass and the large rusty key I found buried in the mud.

    The brass one in the middle is a winder knob off the back of a clock, probably L/H threaded.

    The one in the middle almost resembles a skate key, but as it is brass I'm with you kerry10456 think it and the others are most likely clock keys. Thanks!

    mikie likie ! ornate, when u put that kind of time & pride in the "hardware" of an item, imagine the quality of the item itself! U wount find this in merchandise marked "made in China"

    Thank you mikielike and I agree. I have found, on this site, some of the most ornate things for everyday items. Pride in workmanship.

    Nice old keys. Somewhere in my mass of mess I have a cigar box with old keys like these. When I was a kid skeleton keys were common so I collected them. Along the way I ended up with all different kinds of keys. I stopped collecting them about 40 years ago but kept what I had already had.

    Thanks fhrjr2. I'm much like you in that I have a box full of skeleton keys plus an ammo box full of found keys and keys no longer needed. If nothing more they can be sold for scrap.
