Vintage Iron Rim Lock
Often, when we buy things we think might be suitable for inclusion in our catalogue we don't have a chance to inspect them closely. One of the clues we have to the quality of a thing is it's weight. Generally it is the case that if a thing weighs a lot for it's size the chances are it will be a quality item. This lock is a case in point, weighing in at nearly 1.5 kg without the the key and keep. This lock is a more recent copy of a Georgian lock. It is in remarkable condition having seen little use and it is difficult to tell exactly how old it is. It is top quality however. It has been fully refurbished and is supplied complete with period key and cast iron keep. Larger than the average lock for this type.
