Mystery Lock, precision instrument
We found this lock at a local flea market. We thought it looked interesting so we paid the asking price took it back to the workshop and took it to bits. This is in effect a precision instrument, beautifully made with what we assumed was the original key. On further inspection we were surprised to see that someone seems to have filed the bit of the key that engages with the sash wards, however the lock still works with a satisfying clunk. We think this was probably a safe or strongbox lock judging by the four large holes in the case. Supplied with original key. Milners, Liverpool and London makers
