Georgian Rim Latch/Lock & Knobs
We currently have 1 in stock.
A large original refurbished solid brass left handed antique Georgian rim latch/lock and oval Georgian style handles. From the early part of the 1800s, the solid brass matched knobs are definitely later (early 1900s). We've described it as a lock/latch, it does have it's original key (obviously only works from the outside), the keys been repaired at some point and it needs quite a turn to engage the lock. The keep has hidden screws, see last pic, we've made a couple of repairs to the handles & replaced the collar that held the handles against the lock with a bolt, it will need recessing a few mm into the door, its a bit fiddly, so we'll leave it connected (let us know if you want us to remove it)
Great original working condition, some marks and scratches especially around the handle entry. It would have originally had a frame to connect it to the door, its now got 3 screw holes instead & we've provided some round head wood screws (see pic).
