Seller: jccsullivan (238) 100%, Location: New Castle, Delaware, Ships to: US, Item: 152339443091 Item description Antique Corbin bronze entry door lock set c.1890. This is Corbin's "Florence" pattern, from the company's Romaneque design school. It is in excellent condition and does not look anything like its 100+ year age. The knobs and door plates have aged beautifully, almost leather like in appearance. There is below average wear to the pieces, though the lock face has a light mark on it. The exterior door plate is really outstanding, with beautiful detailing from top to bottom. The mortise lock is an excellent, right hand swing only unit from Corbin's heavy duty Harvard line. It has a superior latchbolt operation. The push buttons on the lock face disable the exterior knob so that a key is needed to gain entry, while leaving the interior knob active, just like a modern lock. The cylinder lock is a very high quality vintage Yale unit with two keys (one is bent). The installation of this type of lock can be complicated and I highly recommend a locksmith if you are not sure you have the skills to manage it. This is also a large set best suited for doors 1 3/4" to 2 1/2" inches thick with atleast a 5" stay to mortise the lockset into. The small brass collar seen in the picture is for installing the set on thinner doors, so it can be done. The mortise lock's backset to the keyhole center is 3" and the face plate is 7 3/8" x 1 1/4". The lock box is 5" tall x 3/4" thick x 4" deep. The exterior door plate is 13 1/8" tall x 3 7/16" wide. The exterior and interior knobs are 2 1/2" and 2 1/4" in diameter, respectively. The strike plate is 3 3/16" x 1 3/16". The round interior knob escutcheon is 2 1/8" in diameter. The set includes one solid bronze faced mortise lock, two cast bronze knobs, one exterior cast bronze door plate, one round interior knob escutcheon, a boxed strike plate and two keys. Also included is the correct, reconditioned knob spindle. This lock set functions beautifully and is ready to be installed. If your going to spend real money on a vintage lock set you should expect no broken or missing parts, pieces that have not been abraded and diminished by sand blasting, wire brushing or excessive polishing.Selling Terms Paypal only & within three (3) days of auction close.
