Antique Box Lock, large and original
A large antique wrought iron box lock. Original key and hand made replacement catch plate. In full working order. Removed old flaky paint from front surface and cleaned mechanism and surfaces. Protected with a coat of clear wax. Lovely `old metalwork' patina left alone. Age unknown exactly but well over 100 years we are sure. Hand made, a bit `out of square`. Overall dimensions given below Check images for more exact figures. Possibly continental in origin due to the shape of the key. Forend width dimension refers to the top plate with the holes in.
