Beyond their functional use of operating locks, our skeleton keys have been used as decorations adorning door knobs and such dangling from ribbon or cording. Our skeleton keys have been used in weddings to adorn special seating cards. School children have been thrilled by receiving a special “key” award. Our local school used antique reproduction keys in their national honor society induction. A key suspended by a ribbon forming a necklace was given to each child as part of the ceremony representing the key to knowledge. The students treasured the keys, in part, because they were unique.
