bullet  Antique Brass Latch, Enigmatic

back one page
go to the beginning of category: Locks - rim locks defines enigmatic as Resembling an enigma, or a puzzling occurrence, situation, statement, person, etc. perplexing, mysterious We think this Georgian brass latch is nothing if not enigmatic. Firstly the latch is the 'wrong way around' to be useful as a normal rim lock/latch. We can't provide with a keep as we don't know what form it will take. Tell us what it all means and we'll provide a keep F.O.C even if we have to make it ourselves. Secondly, where are the fixing holes? Well they're there but hidden. This lock features concealed fixings. The backplate is secured to the door, the lock is slid over the plate so that the lugs on the brass case engage with the hooks on the backplate. The lock case is then secured to the plate wth a screw. Ingenious. The case shows plenty of surface character most of which we have left in place as it forms part of the patina of the lock.
