Rare wrought iron rim dead bolt,
circa 1800 - very large. heavy, and well made. This type of bolt was often used in conjunction with another lock
or thumb latch, or alone on a door that needed heavy bolted security. No knobs or privacy function. The surface mount bolt body itself measures 7" high x 12" deep x 1 5/8" thick. without the keeper which mounts on the door
jamb and measures 2 1/4"wide additional with brass edge trim (keeper is a new replacement made
in our shop). This bolt is not reversible, for a left hand door only hinged on the right.
Bolt is restored and complete with 8" brass key long enough to accommodate a 2 1/2" door thickness. Also included oval brass key escutcheon 3 1/2" high x 2 1/2" across. Both key and escutcheon are period appropriate replicas made in our shop. Iron bolt measures 2 1/2" high x 1" and extends outward 1" when thrown via key. In excellent condition and working well. Comes complete with mounting screws.
