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.

High Quality Authentic Appearing Cabinet Knob

Like so many of the repros at Historic Houseparts, this repro is VERY authentic appearing & high quality. Nothing available elsewhere at even close the price.

Great find

Most catalogs & stores sell wood knobs of cherry, oak, maple, & sometimes pine. Solid, unfinished walnut is hard to find. Historic Houseparts sells these. They are well made, no defects, & come with screws. Company service is excellent, delivery prompt, exactly as advertised. Highly recommended.

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!

High quality - holds up well

We installed these numbers on our main house in 2011 and they look brand new to this day. Very happy with the weight and quality. Very durable and they look modern and fantastic. We purchased a second set for our back unit in 2018 because we are so happy with them. Great service from Historic House Parts too!

Arts and Crafts Numbers

It has been a challenge to find house numbers in an Arts and Crafts Style that actually look like it was original to the time period. These numbers hit the nail on the head. I get nervous about buying things online and hope that they look good and these house numbers did not disappoint. I love the finish on them as well. I would purchase from Historic House Parts again!

Good Product

Our brand new porcelain sink developed cracks almost immediately after install. The cracks then flaked off until we were left with deep, wide cracks. We needed a filler as part of the repair. This was a Godsend! It went on perfectly. We had to do several applications to fill in the damage, but it was worth it. Highly recommend if you need to fill.
