Interior cast iron and solid brass Yale & Towne mortise door lock. An interior mortise lock is a lock which is used on an interior door that has been cut with a pocket or hole into which the lock is to be fitted. Interior mortise locks commonly include a doorknob hub, through which a doorknob spindle is installed and doorknobs are mounted on each side and secured into place with pins or set screws; and a keyhole which accommodates an old-fashioned bit or skeleton key which in turn throws the deadbolt to lock and unlock the door. Mortise locks have specific dimensions including backset, the measurement from the edge of the faceplate (the strip that shows when the mortise lock is installed in the door) to the center of the doorknob hub; and spacing, the measurement from the center of the doorknob hub to the center of the round part of the keyhole. The dimensions were not standardized in the 19th century so it is important to note the dimensions of your door prior to purchasing a mortise lock.

In 1842, Linus Yale Sr. started designing and manufacturing locks at his Yale Lock Shop in Newport, New York. He specialized in expensive, handmade bank locks. By 1868, Linus Yale Jr. and his colleague Henry Towne founded the Yale & Towne company, at the time employing 35 people at their factory in Stamford, CT. By the early 20th century the company, under the brand name of Yale, expanded internationally and employed more than 12,000 people. Yale invented and produced the first combination locks.

Transom locks and chains

My wife and I are building a 1930s craftsman style house, with transom Windows over all the the main doors and interior openings. The transom locks and Chains purchased from Historic House Parts look awesome and period correct . Customer service couldn't have been better!! Great job.

Glass Door Knob/Door Plate

Fantastic service, very easy to shop for antique and historic parts (sizes are viewable with the pictures!). Screws came with the door plate and made installation very easy. We are very glad these folks are in business. I will look for more historic parts for our 90+ year old house.

Kitchen faucet

I just finished installing the faucet and it's very nice. Beautifully machined. It works perfectly.

Stunningly beautiful

Extremely pleased. We needed a narrow piece on the receptor side because of modern doubled glazed windows, and this fit the bill perfectly. Had to search a long time to find this piece and so glad I found it here, at last. Looks absolutely gorgeous and original in our Edwardian home. Highly recommend! Quality and function is outstanding. Had questions about the item and got prompt and thorough response; great customer service. Would gladly order again.

Beautiful piece with historic flair

I absolutely love this addition to my home. I own a home built in 1905 and this was the perfect piece to give it that extra character it needed. People are fascinated every time they come over and end up ringing it over and over again!

Polished Brass Leg Tub Enclosure Set

I absolutely love the way this looks in my new bathroom. I can't comment on how easy or hard the installation was, since I had it done professionally.
