|Midlands Floor Springs Limited||
If you live in and around Derby you may very well be aware of Bennetts the ironmongers starting in 1764 and servicing the Midlands. Today I came across a 400 they supplied to Mickleover Golf Course I believe in the 1970's, safe to say it is now working again.
We took a few 400s and a Monarch to ensure we had the correct one.
Here are some links to Bennetts and the Golf course for those interested.
Is there any one out there who is able to identify this floor spring and willing to share this information?
Below are shots taken from beneath the brass decor plate.
I do know the floor spring was sold by Comyn Ching in or around the 1940's which ties on with the buildings age, built in or around 1935/6.
I suspect these were supplied by John Nicholson furnishing ironmonger and manufactured by Smith and Turner but do accept I may be well wide of the mark on this occasion.
As there is so little information out there with regard to door closers, especially vintage and antique model floor springs, I thought I would start this blog.
