Baldwin 6948 Ornate Mortise Victoria Handleset with 5121 Lever
This solid brass 6948 Victoria Handleset made by Baldwin is as ornate as it gets.

It is available in an array of beautiful finishes including aged brass, satin brass and brown, or lifetime polished brass. It is available as a dummy set or a single cylinder function. The Mortise Victoria Door Entrance Set will fit 1-3/8" or 1-3/4" door thicknesses and with backsets of 2-1/2" or 2-3/4".
Mortise locks have been, and still are, the established norm for Europe and much of the rest of the world. In the early 1960’s Baldwin brought residential mortise locks to America. They ‘founded’ the residential mortise industry and continue to be the leader – so much so that their competitors have bought Baldwin locks for their own homes.
Also Available: Matching Baldwin 5121 Leverset
