I bought these brass locks in India, they were from the colonial days and the keys still work. I thought they would look quite nice in a shadow box but haven't quite figured out the best way to attach them as I don't really want to glue them permanently with super glue and damage them.

    bobogal, I use thin brass wire going thru the back-board & it works well. I have several old locks done that way in my earlier posts with CW if you care to look.

    blunderbuss, thanks for your suggestion, I checked out your old post and saw the nice work you did to wire the locks up. i will have to think about doing the same!

    trunkman, thanks for the appreciation.
