Antique Recessed Rim Latch & Handles
A recessed antique rim latch with its original pair of handles. Designed for the mechanism to sit inside the door so the plate sits flat against the face of the door. The latch was in quite a rusty state so it's been lightly repainted here and there and finished with a couple of coats of lacquer. The latch mechanism has been cleaned and lightly oiled, the brass handles cleaned and polished. It's not reversible so only works on right handed doors. The latch really needs a door at least 38mm thick for the latch face. The keep is a later replacement.
Overall good original working condition, old finishes can be seen on the latch and the keep, some marks and scratches on the handles. It would have probably had a brass plaque on the front.
