Pair of Gibbons Brass Rim Lock Sets RL793
A pair of original, quality late 19th century matching, surface mounted heavy all brass door locks with keeps, keys, keyhole surrounds and spherical shaped door knobs. This superb set was one the most elaborate models produced by W. Gibbons of Wolverhampton. Will take a standard modern square bar for the handles. Replacement keeps have been made to suit and replacement keys cut to fit. These locks have the provision for a handle turn and a key lock. When purchased, the lock on the right of the pictures was empty and the shell was being used as the keep on a large pair of double doors. We have rebuilt the internal mechanism using the complete lock as a guide and we have made it in brass as the original. The lock on the left is marked for 'Gibbons' the rebuilt one is not. The keeps are replacements we have made to suit as are the keys. The keyhole surrounds are the original as are the decorative spandrels and fretted fronts to the locks. Three of the handles are the original and the fourth is very similar and of similar age. All have been fully overhauled, polished and lacquered, although the lacquer may be removed at no extra cost and complete and in good and working order.
