ZLW-281RLock Reproduction Rare Pioneer Scene Right Hand Surface Lock 2 5/8" Backset
This is a lock that was originally produced and patented on Aug 20th, 1858 by Russell & Erwin. R&E were famous for their quality during the Victorian era, and this would have fit in with the Colonial Revival style that came into fashion several times during Victoria's reign. The original antique lock will sell from $600 up, even with broken and missing pieces. Ours is complete with a self-colored iron case and working brass parts. The scene depicts a hunter walking in the forest with his dog, knapsack, and gun.
Recreated by the lost wax casting method, which is the same method as fine jewelry-making. The picture shows the lock for right-hand doors. The lock for left-hand doors is also available.
The case measures 4 1/2" tall by 3 9/16" deep. Catch measures 4 1/2" by 1".
