19th – early 20th century, Berber (Amazigh), Morocco
Everyday objects, once upon a time, were just as beautiful as the object made to be worn. Jewel has a way of seeing these things and elevating them. The wood of the key is so worn and soft from use it’s what you look for in antique furniture. Our talented silversmith backed it in sterling, leaving the prongs and cap to sparkle. It’s modern art.
We have a few of these, though of course no two exact.
Average key: 3 x .75″
Sterling chain length: 26″
