Here is a Brass Antique Trunk Lock , Dated May 1854, Has the name
C. LIEBRICH on the left side, PHILADA on the right side and PATENTED MAY 1854 on the top. The lock is a 2-piece set, the top part fits into the bottom and locks, also has what I think is the original key which does open the lock as it should. The back shows the locking mechanism and appears to be hand made. When the key is removed from the lock a brass sliding door moves to the right (spring loaded) and covers or hides the key hole from view.
If anyone knows more about it please let me know.
