Inspired by an ad in an old (1905) Cosmopolitan magazine that we were browsing through which asked “Are your valuables worth $8?”. While pondering what $8 would be worth today (about $230), we also realized that this ad was a perfect partner to our collection of vintage padlocks and keys that all fit nicely inside an antique wooden pencil case. We’ve also added LED lights at the top of the box to highlight the collection – and they’re battery powered so that there’s no unsightly cord if this is used as a mantle clock.
The quartz clock movement is new, and takes 1 AA battery. The LED lights take 3 x AA batteries. The batteries are not included.
