Seller: pennantique (3,514) 99%, Location: Scranton, Pennsylvania, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 262741523905 Penn Antique Restoration Antique Cast Bronze "Sargent" Train-car Door Lockset w/Levers, Lock, & 2 Keys * Only for doors measuring 1 1/2" - 1 7/8" thick. Reversible and could accommodate any swing. What a rare find! This antique lockset was made by, "Sargent & Co," sometime around the turn of the previous century. It consists of 2 bronze back plates with swinging levers/pulls, 1 iron mortise lock with bronze faceplate, 1 brass strike plate for the jamb, 1 brass cylinder mortise w/2 working keys & brass anti-theft collar, and 4 brass bolts to connect the plates. Please note that to install this set, you'll need to drill four 3/16" holes in your door to insert the bolts. All bronze and brass parts are solid, heavy, thick, cast bronze and brass, not plated steel. Originally, this set was installed in the door of a train car. At the point of salvage, one plate was painted green, and all parts were dirty and heavily tarnished (see last photo). Since then, we removed the paint and cleaned and polished the bronze to the best of our ability. There are a few spots on the pulls where the tarnish was too stubborn to remove. The original bolts that connected the plates together were short and only accommodated a 1 1/2" thick door, so we bought 4 new, brass bolts. They are 3" long and could be cut to whatever size you need. The collar or ring around one of the levers must have gotten loose, and someone soldered it back on. The part is solid and not going anywhere, but the silver-colored solder is quite noticeable. Since the set has an industrial look to it, the soldering just adds to the cool, distressed look. The cylinder mortise w/2 keys we included is considered, "New Old Stock," because it was made a decades ago, but they was never sold and used. The lock face plate and one of the levers has some dents, but they are only cosmetic blemishes and not structurally threatening. One of the levers is bent in more than the other, but this will not be noticeable because both levers will be on opposite sides of the door. Otherwise, all parts are in great shape with only the small nicks and light scratches you would expect to find on old, used door hardware. However, there are no breaks, cracks, or gouges. About the lock: The mortise lock is locked by pushing the top button on the faceplate, and unlocked by either pushing the bottom button or using a key. Once locked, the door could only be opened by turning the lever on the interior side of the door, or by using the key on the exterior side of the door. This is a very convenient feature for the person inside of the room. No more locking and unlocking to let someone in. Simply turn the lever, open the door, let someone in, close the door and it's already locked. To disable the auto-lock feature, simply push the bottom button. We opened, inspected, and we sprayed grease on and around all internal parts of the mortise lock to facilitate their movement. All parts are strong, sturdy, and ready for another lifetime of service.
