Don't let the scale of this realistic carved wood lock fool you. It's 32 inches tall and could be about 20 lbs. The paint and patina is amazing. I was told that it may be a trade sign but could also be a craft item in either case it looks great. I'm guessing it dates to the 1920s-1940s. The paint on the handle is amazing. The keyhole cover reads. Improved Tumbler Lock with an anchor logo. It make a striking display and has the feel of an Claes Oldenburg sculpture.
