Seller: pennantique (3,514) 99%, Location: Scranton, Pennsylvania, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 262741509956 Penn Antique Restoration Antique R&E Neo-Classical Cast Iron Unit Lock * Could only be installed on doors 1 1/2" - 2 1/4" thick. What a rare find! This beautiful, old, unit lock was made by, "Russell & Erwin Mfg. Co." of New Britain, CT around the turn of the previous century. The dark-gray-colored parts with the lovely, egg and dart details are made of solid, heavy, thick, cast iron. The rest of the parts are either copper, brass, or steel. We included a strike plate from our collection that will work with this set. It is not the typical type of strike plate that is used with this type of lock, however, it will do the job. It's made of solid, cast bronze. If you are not familiar with this type of lockset, you will need to cut a rectangular notch on the side of your door measuring approx. 3 3/4"W x 1 1/2"H. The body (middle portion) of the lock slides into the notch, and is secured to the door by inserting screws into the 8 holes in the corners of the plates. Although we do not have a key for it, you may be able to get one made by your local locksmith. However, even without a key the lock is perfectly usable as is. There is a small, bronze band sitting at the base of the interior knob. When you turn the band in one direction, it freezes the knobs in place and the door is "locked." Turn it in the other direction and the door is "unlocked." Since the lockset could only be locked and unlocked by the person insider of the room, this makes this a great privacy set for a bathroom or bedroom. The set could accommodate either a left or right swing door. The set is free of paint and has a great, aged look, which we didn't want to disturb by cleaning. All parts are in great shape with no breaks, cracks, gouges, or big dents. I took the following from the instruction manual of a newer version of one of these locks: "Historically, no lockset design has been as closely associated with the Corbin Russwin (formerly known as "Russell & Erwin") brand name as the unit lock. The unit lock’s sturdy, rugged construction gives it an unrivaled lifetime of smooth, troublefree operation. Tens of thousands of these locks have already outlasted the buildings they were installed in!" * The last photo (only the first row) shows the installation instructions for a similar lock that we had a couple of years ago. We included the photo to give you an idea of what it would require to install this set.
