Finding an exact match for an old lock is not always possible, as only a limited amount of sizes are now made.
Jewelry Box Locksare a brass half mortise style. This style was used on many antique jewelry boxes. The small scale is also choice for little boxes, game chests and silver cases.
These beautifully crafted half-mortise locks are hardworking, made with a German-mechanism. When installing: mortise lock into box interior. Once in place, simple brass plate is all that is seen. Attach strike to underside of lift lid. Center-post of strike drops down into top of lock, when closing lid, to secure box. Made in Germany
These brass half mortise locks are of high quality, easy to install and have the “antique”look I was going for. Not brass plated! I will buy from Paxton again.
Easy to install. Seems sturdy.
The lock was comparable quality to the antique one I removed. I was shipped quickly and include all parts and hardware.
Half Mortise Jewelry Box Locks
Thank you for very beautful, small lock with key. It was very easy to shop with you.
Half mortise lock was of decent quality, good price and great service by Paxton Hardware. Shipping was quick, this lock came with two keys and the screws fit properly — unlike other sellers which send one key, slow order processing and lousy support.
Good Half Mortis lock
Just what is needed for small boxes. Wish it came with Escusion
