Victorian Brass Lock & Beehive Knobs
An unusual late Victorian antique brass rim lock with it's brass beehive door handles and original key. The handle is above the lock rather than side by side. This one was actually off a bathroom door. I'm pretty sure the beehive handles aren't as old as the lock (a few other beehives in the property had also been replaced). The lock has had the mechanism cleaned and refurbished and both items have been machine polished. They'll both quickly tarnish if not kept shiny with a Brasso type product. The handle Rose is a reproduction, its almost identical to the original which was really bent.
Sold as a lock, keep & handles. Only fits RH doors (inside on the right).
Overall great original condition, some scratches on the face of the lock and the handles have some wear on the backs.
