A Moravian open work wrought iron surface mount latch, circa 1800, with the removable screw-off exterior handle.  Levers are what is called a "spoon handle" style and the off-side handle has oval rosette shown with handle in mounted position below.  These latches were made primarily by blacksmiths in Moravian settlements, hence the name.  Lock body measures 6 3/4" x 3 1/2".  This type of lock is not reversible and is left hand only and will fit a door up to a maximum 1 3/8" thick.   This type of lock was used on both interior and exterior doors as the removable handle was actually used as a "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 good working condition restored and complete with original drive-in keeper shown from the side in above photo.  Exterior original escutcheon measures 2 3/4" x 1 1/2".
