Interior cast iron and solid brass Sargent "Easy Spring" push button door latch in excellent condition. 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 1810, Joseph Bradford Sargent and his brothers operated a wholesale hardware business in New York City, and later bought out one of their suppliers, Peck and Walter Manufacturing Company of New Britain, CT. In 1864, they moved the factory to New Haven to be closer to the sea for shipping and the delivery of materials. The first New Haven location was owned by such historical icons as Benedict Arnold, Eli Whitney, and the Fulton Steamboat Company. Sargent & Company of New Haven, Conn., produced and sold planes for an eighty year period from 1884 to 1964. By 1914, the Sargent product catalog listed some 60,000 different items, making it one of the largest hardware manufacturing plants in America.
