Vintage Brass Push Button Russwin Door Mortise Mechanisms.
These 3 door mortises are the same style. Each has a thick brass plate mounted on a heavy black housing. They have a deadbolt plus two pushbuttons at the bottom of the brass plates. One has a slightly smaller brass plate, which is painted.
They do not have doorknobs or mounting hardware. The pushbuttons are frozen, and probably require some cleaning and oiling to operate. The latch on the slightly smaller mortise isn't working. They appear to be all original and are offered in `as found' condition.
Each is marked "Russwin" with no patents shown. The brass plates on 2 measure 7 ¾" by 1" and the 3rd measures 7 ½" by 1". The black housings measure 5 ½" by 3 ½" and 5 ¼" by 3 ¼" respectively. The depth includes the ¼" brass plates.
This is a wonderful old group of door hardware and we're pleased to offer them to help with a home restoration!
