Please note: I have added 17 photos to the end of this listing to try and show the item in as much detail as possible so please take the time to view them all carefully. This is an antique heavy iron door lock with its original key in working condition. Someone has had the plate made that the two lock parts fit into.
This is fairly new and made to look old. It was with the lock when I got it.So if you have a nice old door and you want a lock all ready to be fitted this will work just fine. The business end of the key is nice too as its sort of SSS shaped... I have just noticed actually on the lock itself where the 2 bolts go across inside..
This flat plate MAY have two punched in makers marks which look like CROWNS. The lock mechanism can be seen which is nice and has fancy shaped parts as well as the barrel lock mechanism top is domed with a decorated end. It is clever how the key works the mechanism and quite intriguing how each part moves the further you move the key in the lock.
In collectable condition with normal signs of age and use wear. No damage to the metalware from what I can see but the metalware is tarnished. P lease see all pictures provided for more details. 7 and 3/4 inch long x 6 and 1/2 inch widest part x 4 and 3/4 inch at the straight side width.
