Antique brass padlocks are usually made of brass, metal, or iron. Their design and construction are carefully thought out. They come in various styles and ages, from the nineteenth to the twentieth century. Victorian designs are especially popular, as are those associated with the Empire. Some of the most beautiful examples were created by Chubb & Son and Barrons Patent Lock.
Historically, padlocks were first used to protect goods from thieves. They were portable and convenient, so merchants often used them. In addition to being a great security measure, they also began to incorporate decorative elements based on local art. The Swedish Middle Ages padlocks are notable for their large arched-swing shackles. Chinese padlocks, on the other hand, are known for their animal shapes.
