Iron and brass padlock with rotary key, India, 19th century Dimensions: 13 x 7 x 1.5 cm
Made by E. Cotterill & Company, Birmingham, England (UK) between 1846-1914. E. Cotterill Company was formed in 1840, began producing locks in 1846, and stopped at the beginning of WWI, 1914. Lock measures 3 in. (7.62cm) X 5 in. (12.7cm) X 15/16 in. (2.4cm). Made of brass all except shackle (iron). Key is original and is steel. This is a 6-lever lock.
Renowned for its lock manufacturing since the sixteenth century, the Black Country town of Willenhall remains at the heart of Britain’s lock making industry. The Industrial Revolution saw the lock making business boom, and local availability of materials in the area meant Willenhall was the epicentre of it all. With over 300 lock manufacturers in the area by 1855, many families were running businesses from workshops in their backyards.
Similar to Cotterill's padlocks at this time, with the horizontally placed keyhole and Cotterill's style lift-up shackle (presses down to lock). Works well. Size: 4.3" (10.5cm) high x 2.5" (6.3cm) wide.
