Marley Bros Victorian Rim Lock & Handles
A great quality antique late Victorian solid brass rim lock and original handles by Marley Bros of Birmingham. Quite a large & impressive item, the fixed Rose plate on the front of the lock is a bit of a feature to this manufacturer. The handles have an extra little plate that screws on the outside (the other handle covers it) keeping them nice and tight against the lock & door. The keep isn't the original (not sure about the key), it's a slightly different shade but will tarnish down similar to the lock. It has a little brass packer that goes underneath the keep, we've tidied it up, rounded off the edges and put 2 countersunk screw holes in it to make it easier to fit. The escutcheon didn't come with it but it's original to the period.
Sold as a lock, keep, escutcheon & 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 a bit of wear, the keys a bit stiff but works on both sides.
