Victorian Rim Lock

Rim locks were traditionally used to lock doors before mortice locks and are a great way to add real character to any period or vintage door or home.

The Victorian rim lock in the photo is actually called a “rim latch”, as it isn’t locked using a key. It actually has a small locking bolt, operated by a sliding bolt from the inside, making this lock/latch suitable for use with bathrooms aswell as normal doors.

The lock has an external override turn, so that the lock can be opened from the external side, in case of emergency.

The rim lock in the photo is the MDS RV Victorian Rim Latch, paired with the MDS WDBE Ebony Rim Knob.

The door knob in the photo is a “Rim Knob” as opposed to a standard door knonbb.

The difference is that a rim knob has no rose on the one side (lock side) and is attached to the spindle.

This elegant door knob is the Victorian beehive style and is superbly crafted in solid ebony – a wood long regarded as one of the finest and most decorative hardwoods, which polishes to a lustrous finish and is excellent for achieving fine details when turned.
