Restored locks – Cape Town, South Africa
This is what most locks that I receive for restoration look like on the inside – a sight for sore eyes indeed!
“Yes I feel better now”, says the lock. I probably will see your great-grandchildren in a hundred years.
Restored hinges and locks with custom-made keys, custom-made handles and escutcheon plates, with screws, are the average package required for door furniture.
The lock on the top left is more or less a hundred and sixty years old and still working, and will keep on working as long.
