Victorian Rim Lock & Beehive Handles
A late Victorian solid brass antique rim lock and its original pair of quite substantial beehive door handles.The rim lock has its original foreplate keep and key, the beehives are some kind of teak/mahogany and have been ebonised. The lock is stamped with the makers name 'C Smith & Sons, Birm' on the foreplate. We describe it as Victorian but its probably right on that 1900 period as the brass on the lock is a bit Rosy.
The lock has been cleaned, machine polished, oiled and has a new spring, the handles, refinished and waxed.
Sold as a rim lock and pair of handles.
Great original condition, some marks and scratches on the lock and a bit of damage on one of the collars on the handles, see pic.
