This Edwardian pattern thumb door rim lock has a rectangular case in an attractive worn metal finish, with a spring loaded latch and thumb dead bolt actions. To the front of the lock is unusually two brass disks, which is rare, as on most rim locks there is normally only one brass disk or none at all.
The first brass disk is oval and has PATENT SUPERIOR STEEL PALACE ACTION stamped on it, with the second brass disk having DEYKIN & POLLOCK LTD BIRMINGHAM on it. This rim lock can be used on the left or right hand sides of a door. The brass handle has two brass knobs that fit onto the ends of the spindle, and are secured with grub screws. The round brass pressed backplate fits over one of the knob ends. The later cast steel keep complements the lock.You will need some round head screws for the lock and keep, and small brass nails for the backplate, to attach the rim lock set to your wooden door. The rim lock set (including the handle) has signs of wear of knocks and scratches, and there is wear to the lock's spindle (but is in usable condition), which is to be expected in items of such age (please see photographs), which gives the set its individual character. This rim lock measures approximately 127 mm (5") wide, 110 mm (4 5/16") high, and from the centre of the handle spindle to the outside of the lock is 93 mm (3 5/8).
This rim lock and handle set can compliment both period and modern internal wooden doors.
