Has the typical small brass knobs, sheet iron cased mechanism, but the bolt lifts , like the earlier suffolk latch / yorkshire sneck, mechanism. Please make sure you understand how this works as it will not work with most 'keeps'. It mates with a stick-out plate.The iron case is approx 4&1/2 inches by 3&3/8ths inches by 1.2 inch thick. The strike-face is approx 3/4 inches deep. Comes with original brass knobs, both have small dents. There is a sliding privacy bolt, with cast brass knob to underside of lock.Has nice brass makers plate, W Bissell, Wolverhampton.Dirty, has surface rust, but most of the case retains its original black 'crackle' japanned finish, despite scrapes and scratches, hidden under the dirt . Works, but needs a good soak in paraffin, drain, dry and relube.Impossible to date, could be as early as the mid 1700s, and likely still being made in the late 1890s to satisfy a need to 'modernise' cottages with open latch doors .Check out my other lots, save on postage !
