Victorian Gravity Rim Lock
A lovely solid brass cased antique rim lock stamped Wm McGeoch & Co on the foreplate, dating from the late 1800's. This is a high quality 4 lever lock with a gravity operated system for the handle rather than a system of springs. All the brass has been polished but it'll quickly tarnish, the mechanism stripped down, cleaned and oiled. The key is an original but the unlacquered keep is a reproduction.
Overall great working condition, a few scratches on the face of the lock and the keep is a slightly different shade of brass but they'll both tarnish fairly quickly.
