A barrel lock made of fruit wood with a dolphin from the Upper Rhine. The fish, which is moving to the left, has a threatening look. Its mouth is more reminiscent of a land animal such as a dog than of a fish. Its eyebrows and lips are cut in a sawtooth pattern. Its tongue slightly protrudes from its mouth, revealing a few teeth. A brass screw is fixed to the centre of its scaled body.
