Door Lock, Handles, Keep & Massive Key | c140 yrs old | Antique & Restored
Description A wonderful and unusually large antique door lock. Fully reconditioned, working , and ready to go on. Fabulous brass ball handles a matching keep and single key to be proud of this is a secure beauty.
The key its self is something of a work of art and at c7 Inches long would grace many a film set on a belt loop. We only supply one here but they are easy to copy for a professional locksmith should you need more than 1.
The brasswork lock is marked W TONKS & SONS ( although hidden when fitted to a door) .The brass handles screw into place on the steel rod and there is quite a large amount of adjust-ability in the depth of the door it will suit. I'm reliably informed by the restorer that all of the original iron stays and screw fittings are in place and in excellent condition.
This item includes ; Door lock, Key, Keep, All brass fitment screws , 2 brass handles and all the internal metalwork.
Use in a modern home as a superb front / back door deadlock or interior door lock. It's fully functional and given the size of the mechanism that's moved by the key VERY secure.
