Help with Opening Breakfront Lock
I usually hang out in the kitchen forum. Was hoping that someone would be able to help me with my furniture problem. I also posted this in the furniture forum.
I recently inherited a Statton Diningroom Breakfront that was purchased in 1955 by my Great Aunt. The glass doors of the breakfront have "key hole" locks that are in the locked position. I did not receive the key.
After searching the web, I think that it is a skeleton barrel keyed lock. I called Statton, and they were not able to help me. I am trying to avoid the cost of a locksmith ($90 just to walk into my home).
Does anyone have advice of how to unlock this breakfront? My DH and I tried to pick the lock with no success.
Thanks for any advice you could give!
