Label:This beautiful door lock, although certainly the product of Germanic influences, as been tenuously attributed to the shop of John Vogler of Winston-Salem, NC. A lock originally installed in Vogler's own shop during the early 19th century bears a slight resemblance to this object with its "fist & baton" door knob.
