Product Image Gallery:
This is an antique Reading Hardware Co. interior mortise lock with a solid brass faceplate. 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. Please find the item size in the Dimensions tab to the right.

What People Are Saying
Good selection...and fast!

The plates look great on our door. Thanks for shipping so fast and for the great and personal service.
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!
Add a little splash of blue!

Sorry – took forever to find a window to get this installed – but I finally did – AND LOVE the results! I just love blue glass – so this hardware was such fun to find – thanks for offering it! You offered unique, quality made products - and you delivered! Great quality, great looks, great price! Installation was quick and easy!

So happy with these beautiful knobs! We wanted our bathroom to have a special flair and these cabinet pulls completed the look perfectly. A little smaller than we expected, but still a perfect complement to the look we wanted.
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.
Wow factor

We bought an Art Deco vanity table, that had ordinary round brown wooden knobs. We replaced those knobs with these Bakelite knobs. The look now catches our eyes and has upped the Wow factor of the piece in our bedroom.
The best for antique hardware replacement!

Bought for antique wooden storms missing the hook part and are perfect for huge heavy, wooden storm windows. Hook part fits bottom part already attached for hanging. Could not be any more perfect!

Solidly built, charming and wonderful! We test-purchased one set for our craftsman-Victorian home and it matched the 117- year-old feel perfectly! Can't wait for more to become available to that we can finish the other 14 doors :D
