Machine Embroidery Design Gold key - 2 sizes

We can imagine some of the most important keys in history were gold plated. Anyway, sometimes they are worth more than their weight in gold. Commanders of victorious armies often received keys of the cities that they conquered. Time was going, and real gate-opening devices turned into symbolic ones. But one can still find such artefacts in many historical museums.

But do you know that some traditions still persist? In the Tower of London, each evening at the same time, the sentry lets in the last group that enters before gates are closed. The Chief Warder who locked the main doors of the old castle answers a series of traditional questions. The sentry replies: “Pass Queen Elizabeth’s Keys. All’s well”. Gates closed, the Tower sleeps until morning. This story confirms that symbols still mean a lot in today.

This Machine Embroidery Design Gold key is an exquisite way both to ask questions and give clues to answers. Ornate and emphatic, it can express a metaphor or work as a simple decoration. A pillow, a bag or a box for presents will look magnificent with such a symbol.

This art, passed down through generations, is part of my soul and a symbol of national pride.
