Hi there Welcome to this listing. Here I have for sale a really fabulous, very hard to find superbly refurbished STEEL AND BRASS CONSTRUCTION original Victorian 4 lever HEAVY GAUGE Hobbs & Co London Mortice Lock supplied with 6 working keys!!!You read it right - This lock has 6 keys which all work the lock perfectly from both sides with a nice smooth action. Please note that the keys are modern and NOT the original Hobbs & Co keys for this lock. This lock is a rare early 4 lever mortice deadlock lock.
It dates from the around the 1880's era and was removed from the front door of a large Victorian house that had been converted into 6 self contained flats, hence the 6 keys for each tenant to enter the building via the main front door. USED - FULLY REFURBISHED CONDITION - PERFECT WORKING ORDER - LOVELY POLISHED BRASS WORK - 6 WORKING NEW KEYS!!!THIS LOCK HAS 6 KEYS!! - ORIGINAL LARGER VICTORIAN RARE EARLY 4 LEVER HEAVY GUAGE STEEL AND BRASS HIGH SECURITY MORTICE DEAD LOCK IN FIRST CLASS CONDITION. I don't know much more about the history of this old great lock other than it is in very good nick. And it is still going strong! Despite many years of constant use!
This lock now looks super! After it's been fully refurbished by myself to a very high standard.This great vintage lock is probably a collector's item due to its vintage age and its near mint condition. T would suit a Victorian house very well to add that nice graceful period feature. That may be missing or not working in your Victorian home! - This lock is just the very thing if you are a landlord who owns a Victorian building and has multiple tenants that use the same front door to access the building.
Has been professionally FULLY REFURBISHED to a very high standard with its gleaming polished brass & steel work work which looks really beautiful and super! But being an old and original lock it still shows signs of age and many years of use as to be expected with such an old original lock that is now 130+ years old.
Again, This lock in very good condition for its vintage age but being an USED, old original lock it does show some obvious signs of use and has some wear marks to the side of the faceplate and the steel deadbolt which only adds to its original character! There is also a brass keeper plate (striking plate) and 6 brass fixing screws included with this lock.
This lock has 4 secure levers and is still a pretty secure lock as Hobbs & Co were a well known English lock maker that manufactured high quality and secure locks and safes just like Chubb & Sons of the same era. Measurements for this lock are below. Size of lock face: 145 mm high by 29 mm wide by 7mm in depth. Size of lock body or lock case: 98 mm long. (this is excluding the 7 mm thickness of the thick front steel lock plate and the shiny brass face plate) and the lock case is.Approx 90 mm high by 17 mm thick. Total depth of this lock is approx 105 mm. (this is including the 7 mm thickness of the thick front steel lock plate and the shiny brass face plate). The measurement from the front face of this lock to the center of the key hole is 47 mm.
The measurements of the keeper plate that fits on the door frame are 119 mm high by 29 mm wide. The thickness of the keeper plate (or striking plate) is approx 4 mm brass. The total length of the 6 keys range from 74mm to 75mm mm (approx 3 inches long). TIP: On these sort of locks, Once fitted to the door, It is always much easier to use the key to put the dead bolt in the locked position with the door open! BEFORE you fit the front face plate and two small screws to finish the job.
