Foth Lock Co. No.11 Tower style Handcuffs w/ Box & Key

An interesting set of handcuffs complete with a great looking box:






Up for auction is this Very Scarce set of Foth Lock Co. (Tower design) handcuffs with original box and key. The cuffs are not marked and have the early three ring design joining the two cuffs. The cuffs retain almost all their original bright nickel plating and have NOT been cleaned. There is some slight wear in the nickel on one side of each of the hinges where they most likely rubbed on the bottom of the box and is shown in the images.

Box and label are in crisp fine condition. The label reads; “ADJUSTABLE DOUBLE LOCK HAND CUFFS” – “MANUFACTURED BY FOTH LOCK CO. MADE IN U.S.A. TORRINGTON, CONN., U.S.A.” - “ No.11” – “ Nickel Plated” – “One Pair” – “FORGED SHACKLES” - eBay (25 April 09)

This set of handcuffs sold for $450 (Plus $10 Shipping).
