Vintage Mortice Lock, top quality, either handed
A top quality relclaimed brass and iron mortice lock. Two lever, reversible bolt by Laidlaw and Thompson, Manchester. Reverisble latch bolt makes this lock either handed, or, in other words suitable for left or right hung doors. Check out the images to see the quality of the mechanism. No thin pressed metal here, all solid cast from brass and bronze. Check out how the spindle cam hole an the key hole have been enhanced with brass inserts. Brass is self lubricating and makes for a smoother action. Not a cheap manufacturing process and another sure sign of quality. We have a number of these locks available which we will list at they are restored/become available. Supplied complete with complex hand cut replacement key and either handed strike plate. This lock is currently configured for right hand use.
