Desk Lock 2 3/4" x 1 7/8"
Made in England
Size: 2 3/4" x 1 7/8", Selvedge: 9/16"
This is without doubt the best sloping selvedge desk lock we have seen. The back is a heavy brass extrusion with an angled selvedge to suit the bevel cut on the front edge of period drop front deck flaps and the box is cast brass. This lock has a conventional 2 lever type but with particularly nice action and matches the drawer lock 168LC1, like that lock it has backset to key pin of 1 1/8", this is a common backset on period furniture and makes possible much more attractive placing of the keyhole escutcheon than can be accomplished with regular cabinet locks. We highly recommend these locks for the best work.
