I'm in need of a key for a Murphy 19 cedar chest! Anyone know where I can get one? Help!
Finding a key to an older cedar chest may be akin to finding a needle in a haystack.
There is not a lot of history about the Murphy cedar chest company but I believe it went out of business in 2004.
These were usually called the "poor people's hope chest" as they were usually less costly then a Lane.
Here is a site that might be able to give you some advice.
I also know that a lot of antique stores have old keys. You might be able to find one there. I'm not sure if you need a coded key or if it is a generic skeleton type key.
Good luck and let us know what you find out.
My wife has an old Murphy Cedar Chest #4045. She has lost the key for the lock. We have checked locally with a locksmith and they do not carry the blanks. Does any one know where I might obtain a key or a blank? I have searched the web without results.
We have a local hardware store that carries old keys. You might want to check in your neighborhood to see if any have them.
