Padlocks in India

This section on Indian padlocks is part of a series of articles about Asian padlocks, which began with “Padlocks in China”.

 Bronze padlock with straight shackle. Human figure. Screw lock.

Most of the pictures in this section show padlocks from a private collection. The owner, Chandra Prakasch Vyas (Kanha), lives in the city of Jodhpur in the state of Rajasthan in northwestern India. He is the son of the man who created this beautiful collection over a period of 50 years. The father is no longer with us.

I’d like to thank Chandra Prakasch Vyas warmly for contacting me Raine Borg, and for the pictures he produced himself and generously provided. These locks are examples of Indian craftsmen’s skill, imagination, flexibility and expertise in using various metals.
