Locks of Very Special proportions and construction type , in Russia it was called " Английский Замок" / "British Lock " but in Britain in elsewhere in Europe they often call it " Russian Lock ".
This type of Lock appeared in Russia at late Imperial period and was popular before and after Russian Revolution of 1917, all USSR period and it is still used by jewelers in Russia of Today and around.. Considered by many to be very secure, but still may need some periodical minor adjustments if used everyday. Many Spanish early XX cent.
