Are you currently restoring an old Victorian house, OR have plans down the road for such an endeavor? When it comes to finding hardware for old doors,

I have the perfect solution in your quest for authentic restoration parts.

I am selling unique, hard to find door components removed from a Victorian house built in 1874 in Hampstead , Maryland ( Carroll County ). The new owner

is upgrading the house with modern components throughout but didn't want to discard the original hardware, knowing how hard old door parts are to find; particularly considering the condition these items are in. Tfore, I have agreed to list them on his behalf.

Up for your consideration are 15 antique locks, 15 matching catches, 14 metal key hole covers, 13 door knob sets (plus three spare knobs),

13 door knob shaft covers, 3 door hinges, 15 door knob shaft washers, 6 skeleton keys, 2 kitchen cabinet latches with catches. and 1 window

latch set . Many of these items have some old white paint around the edges which do not detract from their value & will certainly come off with just a little scrubbing.

For a complete picture of these items, I've described everything in detail as follows:

Fifteen door locks . All are solid and in good working order. Only the largest one has a hint of rust on one corner. All but three locks have a

toggle switch on the side to lock/unlock the door handle from turning. I have grouped the locks by their approximate measurements as follows:

Nine locks - 4" x 3 ¼"

Three locks - 4 ¼" x 3 ¼" (including one marked "Russwin")

Two locks - 5 1/8" x 3 3/4 (marked " Norwich , USA ")

- one marked "Patd. July 21, 1863"; and,

- one marked "Patd. April 20, 1868"

One lock - 4" x 5 7/8"

Fifteen corresponding door lock catches . Five are unmarked. Ten are marked as follows:

Two catches - marked "2200"

Four catches - marked "040"

Two catches - marked "0211"

One catch - marked "530"

One catch - marked "1288"

Two cabinet latch & catch sets. Both marked "Pat. Feb 7, 1871"

Fourteen key hole covers. All different styles & shapes

Thirteen Door knob shaft covers. One marked "400"

Three decorative door hinges. One missing a finial

One window latch & bracket set.

Fifteen washers for door knob assemblies.

Six skeleton keys (including one marked "4"; one marked "6" (with "x"); and one brass key fits the 1868 lock)

Thirteen Door knob sets with shafts & screws. T are four main styles listed as follows:

Four knobs -green mix (ceramic/glass texture)

Three knobs -white (ceramic/glass texture) one with brass ends

Two knobs - metal (one painted silver, one painted black: both with some paint flaking)

Four knobs - brown swirl (ceramic/glass in texture)

Three knobs - individual spares (ceramic/glass in texture)
