militaria item Pair of patch lock shotgun locks, Lowe of Chester
- English
These locks are a modification of Manton's 1816 patent pellet lock, which was virtually Manton's only serious design failure in what was an amazingly inventive career. They are almost certainly locks for shotguns and are marked 'Lowe of Chester', more than likely Thomas Lowe of Chester, 1792-1834.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.

I should have written sooner, but I did want to let you know that the photos arrived safely and are absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with them.

Thanks for the excellent service and great photos. I hope we have occasion to do business together again.
