These tiny working padlocks were made by B & P Walters of Wolverhampton (who also made locks for John Tann, the top tier Victorian Safe makers) in the 1880s. Walters were then high quality lock manufacturers. This lock measures only 0.65" (16mm) high. It has floral engraving on the front and on the back appears to be an engraved Duck in a pool, with reeds drawn around the edges.
This little gem was to put on the leash of a very special dog. It is brass and 1 inch long. The lock opens when you push and turn the button. It could be worn as a pendant. C. 1900.
