Restored Antique Rim (Box) Locks, page 16
American beveled non-reversible cast iron rim lock called a cottage lock and very difficult to find. This lock was manufactured and signed by the Norwich Lock Co., and since this company was founded around 1865, we believe this type to be among some of their earliest offered locks. Signed next to the keyway on the front of the lock as shown in close-up below. These locks had a distinctive profile in that the latch and dead bolt portion were full thickness while the center space between was indented and very thin - photo below right shows profile from the edge. Latch and bolt sections are beveled into the center for a unique look. This particular lock also offers a decorative edging top and bottom. Lock is right hand only, non-reversible and measures 5 1/2" high x 3 3/4" deep without the keeper which is 1 1/8" additional. The keeper was also made with the same unusual raised profile. Bolts are cast iron and the back set is 2 7/8". Restored and complete with original cast iron trim, early original brown swirl mineral door knobs, and one key. Restored, complete, and ready to install - comes with slotted mounting screws.
