We’ve seen loads of smaller versions over the years , but rarely anywhere near as ornate as these , and never with original small padlocks and keys .
In good vintage condition they make great decorative items , and together they could be used as book-ends .
Once unlocked you simply insert a piece of paper , and it produces a lovely stamped image . Larger one is for The McFarlane Winch Co Ltd , and the other is for Clarke Chapman Co Ltd .
Both extremely heavy , so could be used as non matching dumbbells !!
