This really nice Lovell sold on eBay recently and it has the exact same key as a pair that I have.
As both cuffs are very pristine and just about mint condition, I am wondering if these are the original keys.
I always thought that someone made my key because it is a bit ornate for a cuff key.
Does anyone else have this same key for their Lovell?
I have a Lovell leg iron that definitely has a home-made key and would be pleased to know if my marked Lovell came with its original key.
Lars, thanks for your info.
Being that your marked and unmarked examples came with the same key as my minty marked version does support the theory that these must be original keys.
Joe, nice score on your cuff. The price was reasonable and the seller is known to carry high end pieces. I paid a bit higher in the day for a similar item.
This item also being in mint or near mint condition which has the same key, should eliminate any doubt that these were furnished for the Lovell products.
Congratulations and enjoy.
