Antique Framed Iron Pipe Key | Collectors Wall Art
The pipe key was developed as early as the twelfth century, in an attempt to prevent the lock from being picked with a simple piece of wire.
It has the disadvantage that it can only be operated from one side and is most suited to chests or furniture.
Many people nowadays are collectors of old keys such as the one framed here. Old keys carry various meanings and symbolisms. To name a few of those symbols, some see them as a representation to new beginnings, freedom, history and in the case of Palestine, the willingness to return to the homeland.
