That pie cabinet sounds divine. Any pics? Did the locksmith get it open? I had my pops antique trunk/chest for years, its about the same vintage, its at my mums now, I stayed with her for a few months years ago and I let her have it. But it used to not lock, and during the move to my mums the removal guys locked it, still cant open it.. It would cost a hundred bucks here to get a locksmith, almost not worth it..
Why not google antique restorers and order yourself a set of skeleton keys for $15, or I did see a restorer who could make a custom key for you, but they need keyhole/shank measurements.
Three locksmiths could not get it open, nor could we with a sampler skeleton key set, so hubby had to remove chicken wire from front door and then removed the entire locking mechanism, which he said was seized (even after oiling/greasing it). So, I now have useable storage.
We also inherited a cedar hope chest and a wooden and leather trunk (looks like a pirates chest) which I can't find the keys for, but they are not locked at this point.
Here is a pic of it. with chicken wire still intact. I posted pics of it before somewhere here, but who knows where.
