Question by Blossom: Where can I find a Full Mortise Lock for an antique secretary?
The lock I am trying to replace has the following measurements. The box is 1 inch by 1 inch.The face plate(?) is 2 inches long. it is 1/2 inch from the key hole to th edge of the door. The lock is for a right hand door. I have looked at various websites (House of Antique Hardware, Lee Valley, Rockler, Woodcrafter) None of them have a lock with these specifications.
I took the lock to the local lock smith. He said he did not have one and doubted anyone had one. I think he just didn’t want to be bothered with finding one

That is going to be tough to find, although people do collect the fancy Victorian locks door plates & related items, the problem is, most of that old hardware stuff wind up in the trash or scrapyard. You might be able to modify an old mortise dresser drawer lock with a larger face plate to fit (wouldn’t be an exact restoration but would let you keep the door closed until hopefully, one day, you run across the correct lock.
