Double key way cast iron Victorian vertical rim lock for a front entry door, manufactured circa 1875.  Lock measures 5 3/4" x 3 3/4" and is reversible.   Lock has a night latch seen at the top edge of the lock which will lock the knobs.   The top key works or retracts the latch from the outside when the knobs are locked.  The iron pull lever seen below in close-up on the back edge of the lock  retracts the latch from the inside when knobs are locked - this can be changed from side to side for either handing.  This feature made sure no one could enter your house from the outside without the latch key yet the door is easily opened from inside without a key.  The bottom key way throws the deadbolt which was used for security at night.  Keeper measures 1" width.  Back set is 2 3/4".  Restored, complete with white porcelain  door knobs and cast iron rosette plus cast iron double key escutcheon, 3 3/8" x 1 5/8", with a swinging cover over the bottom key way for the exterior.  Lock comes with two keys, one for each key way, as well as slotted mounting screws.  Complete and ready to install.
