Ornate Vintage Inspired Victorian Skeleton Key

This a reproduction of an original Victorian skeleton key that I was blessed to stumble upon in a local antique shop. I’ve never encountered such a beautiful key in my life and felt compelled to share its beauty. I have reproduced it in jewelers grade silicon bronze and captured every delicate floral detail as well as the areas that have been worn smooth on the original. After carefully polishing it, I oxidized and burnished it by hand until it looked as old as the original. I’ve hung it on a vintage 3mm copper chain that is oxidized to match. The chain is a long 18″. The chain can be changed if it’s not to your liking.
