Part of key of Post-Medieval to Modern date, AD 1700 - 1950. Only the bow survives. It is in the form of a flat, openwork trefoil with three circular perforations. In the centre of the base of the trefoil collar is a small, flat stub of metal where the bow was attached to the rest of the object. There is no decoration and the metal has a rough, dark brown patina. It is rectangular in cross-section, and is 28mm long, 34.4mm wide and 3.7mm thick. It weighs 13.69gm.
The key handle may be from a locking key, or could bepart of a barrel tap similar to GLO-5E8406, though a locking key of modern date seems the most likely identification.
This object was originally identified as a thumbpiece from an ejector candlestick, and paralleled with http://www.coulborn.com/furniture-categories/metalwork-and-treen/pair-of-square-based-brass-candlesticks-with-slide-ejectors/ which cites Caspall, J, Fire and Light in the Home pre-1820, (Antique Collector's Club, 2000), figure 216. Other examples are also recorded on the database; see for example records WMID-6FAB26 and LIN-666663. However, it is larger and more robust than these examples.

Incomplete cast copper alloy night latch or slide key, missing the internal bars in the bit which would have turned the lock. The key is complete and in a very good condition. It is slightly bent, probably from use on a heavy latch. The handle or bow is oval-shaped with a slightly expanded inner edge opposite the shank. The bow narrows into the shank which is round in section at this point. The shank or stem has three concentric parallel mouldings along its length, before it meets the bit at right angles, where it is square in section. The bit is shield-shaped with indented rectangular recesses half way along each internal edge, and two projections on one side which would have been mirrored by two projections on the opposite side and possibly bent into a 'L' shape as seen in LANCUM-9C5462, or straight, but not meeting in the middle as in LANCUM-01DC94. Night latch or slide keys have been known since the Roman time and there are numeous examples from the medieval and post-medieval period. This example, from its style of bow and shank, dates from the 19th century.
The bow is 22 mm long and 22 mm wide; the shank is 16 mm long and 9 mm in diameter, and the bit is 28 mm long, 23 mm wide and 4 mm thick.

Cast copper alloy night latch key, probably dating from the 18th or 19th century. The key is complete and in a very good condition. It is slightly bent, probably from use on a heavy latch. The handle is oval-shaped with two mouldings beneath on the shank, while the bit is shield-shaped with a large single perforation that resembles a Maltese cross. On one side of the handle, at the top of the bow, are four deliberate notches, possibly a tactile aid for the use to align the key in the darkness. Night latch or slide keys have been known since the Roman time and there are numeous examples from the medieval and post-medieval period. This example, however is probably early modern, dating from the Georgian era.

A complete cast copper-alloy rotary key of probable Modern date (c. 1800-c. 1900).
The bow is circular and solid and tapers slightly in thickness, from the shank towards the apex. It has a diameter of 18.1mm and a maximum thickness of 3.6mm. At the apex of the bow there is an integral circular suspension loop with a circular hole that has a diameter of about 3.0mm. This suspension loop has a free running copper-alloy ring with an outer diameter of 16.4mm. It is circular in cross-section and has a diameter of 3.1mm. There is no collar dividing the shank from the bow. The shank is hollow to depth of 13.7mm and has a length of 15.3mm. It is oval in cross-section (6.6 x 5.6mm) and has a simple rectangular bit (6.0 x 4.9 x 5.0mm) that has no clefts or channels.
This key has a shiny mid-green patina and is corroded in places. An elongated aperture on one side of the shank appears to be a casting flaw rather than having been deliberately created.
50.9 x 18.1 x 5.6mm. Weight: 12.22g.
