This piece of stamped and cut brass opens first one door then the next, each opened door moving the artist closer to her studio. This key does not open the car door, because the artist already tried that. Twice. It does not open the back door at home, unless that takes more than 7 attempts. And certainly not the garage. It just doesn't. The first attempt at inserting this key into its intended lock met with resistance until JH pounded it into the tumbler, exposing a distinct bend. This was flattened with a mallet whack or two, and it now opens its two doors without resistance. The key still does not open the car door. Or the back door. Or the garage. But not for want of trying.
