Cast Iron Spring-Style Sash Lock w/ Copper Detail C1890

Item #F3235


Cast iron sash locks were a dime a dozen (maybe literally) in the latter half of the 1800s, but the nicer ones featured brass or copper accents, like this example.

In his chapter on sash locks in the 1889 book “Builder’s Hardware," Clarance Howard Blackall describes this type of lock thusly: “The lever is on the lower sash hooking under a tooth on the upper sash which is beveled so as to draw the sashes more closely together. A strong spring about the axle of the lever tends to throw it open while a small bolt inside the lever locks into a concealed catch on the post or axle of the lever. The bolt ends in a knob and is fitted with a spring which keeps it pressed tightly towards the center so that the lever is caught and held when it is turned clear around through 90 degrees. On pulling the knob, the catch is released and the lever flies open.”
