Reading French Door Lock Box

Small mortise lock box made by Reading. Cir. 1920s. These types of “half” box locks were made for use with doors that had glass, such as french doors, or screens where there was not as much wood frame to work with.  Marked RHCo. on one side and 10859 on inside.

The box measures 3 3/4″h x 2 1/4″d x 1/2″ thick.

The front face plate measures 5 3/4″h x 7/8″w. It is marked 18 at the top. Japanned copper finish with a little bit of rust corrosion.

This lock box is reversible.

We clean, oil and test all of our lock boxes to make sure that they are fully functional. If needed, we may be able to match a skeleton key. We also may be able to match a strike plate/keeper for an additional $10. Please let us know if you are needing additional parts. It is best if we can match parts up while we have it in hand so that we can make sure everything works together properly.

This is an antique item and may show wear due to age. This may include scratches, pitting, patina, finish loss, rust or other general wear. We attempt to include any significant damage beyond regular wear within the description. We make every effort to clean as much paint, dirt and rust off of items while still leaving as much of the original patina as possible. Photos shown are of actual item you will receive.
