Old Locks


 

Many years ago I saw a collection of old keys in the house of a friend. Years later another friend in Dijon had a collection of old locks. They were gorgeous. So I started to look at details during my travels. In the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, iron was used for centuries by the Catalans and they developed beautiful ways of sculpting it and making use of it in doors, locks and construction in general. So here is my own collection of beautiful (to me at least) locks with Catalan iron.
