Elegant, antique, internal, slide bolt salvaged from Northeastern Pennsylvania. The plate and rod/bolt are solid, heavy, thick, cast iron.
* We didn't include a keeper, but you could purchase one from us for an additional $10 (see 2nd to last photo). Email us after the auction if you're interested.
The activator was originally copper-plated, however, some of the plating wore off over the years leaving it with a nice, distressed finish.
If you are not familiar with this type of hardware, it's the locking mechanism installed on one of the doors in a pair of double doors, for the purpose of keeping one door stationary, while allowing the other to swing freely. The last photo shows a similar bolt that sold awhile ago. We included the photo to give you an idea of how this flushbolt would look like once installed.
At the point of salvage, all parts were dirty and rusty (see 4th photo). Since then, we've cleaned all parts to the best of our ability, trying to preserve as much of the plating as possible.
All parts have small nicks and subtle scrapes, which are typical for pieces this old. However, there are no breaks, gouges, or cracks. The spring behind the lever is strong, and won't allow gravity or a bump to retract the bolt once it's extended. We greased the springs and the sliding mechanism to facilitate their functions. All parts are strong and ready for another lifetime of service.
