~Tramway Token Denver Colorado~

Originally a streetcar system in Denver Colorado that was incorporated in 1886 the Tramway used a variety of passenger car types including Conduit Cars until 1888 cable cars until 1890 and trolley cars until 1950. No one knows why the name Tramway was given to these rail lines. At its peak, the Tramway company owned more than 160 miles of track and 250 cars. In 1950 streetcar operation ceased and the company used trolley coaches but in May 1971 the Denver Tramway corporation finally shut down operations and handed over operations to the City of Denver metro.

~Keys / Locks~

 The right key can unlock the door to a lover’s heart, a new and bright opportunity, a once in a lifetime adventure, a chest of treasure, a deep and dark secret, or even change time itself by the winding of an old grandfather clock…

Historically, Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, can serve as a reminder that there is beauty in having the key to free ourselves…but taking the first step through the door is entirely up to you…one key, one lock…but what’s on the other side of the door is infinite possibility.

 

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
