An early square cornered Pennsylvania German or Dutch Elbow Latch with the removable screw-off exterior handle shown below, circa 1830.  Levers are spoon style and the off-side handle has round rosette.  Lock body measures 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" and offers a slide privacy bolt operated by the extended finger slide seen at the bottom of the latch.  This type of lock is not reversible and is left hand only and will fit a door up to 1 3/4" 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.  Lock is in excellent condition, restored, and complete with keeper ( 3 3/8" x 1 1/8") shown to the left of the lock.   In very nice condition - complete with slotted mounting screws.
