About Author

After a career in the London Stock Exchange, William Wallace entered the antiques trade and then the jewellery business. A chance encounter with an abandoned door in southwestern France sparked his interest in keys. He has now been an ardent collector of antique keys (a cagophilist) for more than thirty-five years during which time he has become accepted as an authority on the subject, well known to museums and collectors in Britain and overseas.
