An early square cornered Pennsylvania German or Dutch Elbow Latch with the removable screw-off exterior handle shown below in mounted position, circa 1820.  Levers are spoon style and the off-side handle has round rosette.  Lock body measures 3" x 6 1/4" x 1 1/8".  This type of lock is not reversible and is left  hand only and will fit a door up to 1 1/4"  thick maximum.   This type of lock was used on both interior and exterior doors as the removable handle was actually used as the "key".  When you left home or just wanted privacy, the handle was removed so the latch could not be operated from the outside.   Each handle was hand threaded to match each individual lock and handles were not interchangeable between locks.  Lock is in excellent condition, restored, and complete with wrought iron drive-in keeper 3 3/4" overall .   In very nice condition - complete with slotted mounting screws.
