Mid  to late 18th century Colonial bar latch.  These door latches had bar latch members each mounted on separate plate style escutcheons.  The interior was made up of the bar, operating cam, staple, and jamb keeper.  The exterior side offered a narrow neck brass knob and rosette (pictured above the bar set) that mounted through the door, through the cam (the pivot under the bar), and was secured in place by a nut threaded on the end.  When the knob was turned the cam would pivot and operate the bar from the exterior side.  The staple keeps the bar from rotating too much - the jamb keeper is self explanatory.  The bar measures 9 3/8" overall with the escutcheon measuring 4 1/4" x 3" and has a small operating brass knob that is peened on 7/8" diameter.  The staple escutcheon is 4 1/4" x 1 1/2"  and the keeper plate is 4 3/8" x 1 5/8".  The exterior knob measures 2" in diameter with original 1 1/2" rosette both in original patina.  A well wrought and complete set - all original.  Reversible.
