Hand Forged Iron Door Locks

Our resident locksmith Kevin Moreau practices his art in the tradition of the 16th Century European guild craftsmen. His work complements our Arts & Crafts and Gothic style fenestration. Not only do his lock designs, based on his research of Bavarian antiques, look authentic they also function beautifully. Kevin takes great pride in balancing the tension of the hand forged springs. The silver soldered keys are hand filed and fit till the lock action is as smooth as silk. For the purist a traditional latch string can be incorporated. For those not wanting to carry a 1/4 pound key around Kevin can adapt a modern profile cylinder disguised with a key cover. Kevin also makes custom brass rim-locks which can be finished in most of the standard US finishes such as polished or satin brass, nickel plated and oil-rubbed bronze. Reproductions from your existing antique or historic photograph is also a specialty.
