1800s French Surface Lock
An unusual wrought iron surface mounted antique door lock, I'm pretty sure it's French and dates from the late part of the 1800s. The brass handle operates the bolt from the inside and the key operates the bolt. From the outside the key operates both the bolt and the lock. The long brass key entry does limit the thickness of door it'll fit (protrudes 35mm from the back). The keep originally had a little 5mm packer under it, I've measure the clearance it does fit bit its tight so may need a packer to be on the safe side. Lightly refinished and waxed, only one key.
Good original condition, some marks and wear.
