1950's Lock Set Returned to Preston Feather

We often have customers bring us interesting items they find during their remodeling projects. Most recently, Brent Marlatt dropped off this pristine lock set, shown left in the photo, and bill of sale from 1954. We were known then as Preston Feather & Sons. While showing it off to Window & Door Specialist Keith Reeb, he recognized it immediately. His historic home has the very same lock set installed, photos to the right. We can only guess that it had been purchased from Preston Feather also.
