Over the years I have restored a large number of asntique locks from various manufacturers. Today I am sorry that I did not document them well enough because it will be helpful to have a reference and interesting to see the different makes, shapes and sizes. In South Africa you will find, apart from the sought-after Carpenter locks, names like H+T Vaughn, John Wayne and Union. Always look out for the brass medallion with the maker’s mark on the lock.
