Rare early American made horizontal rim passage latch with no keyed bolt - one of  the earliest cast iron reversible rim latches, originally patented in the 1840's and extended in 1856.  The latch is beveled on all  sides with a large lip on the keeper.  This allows the lock to be used facing either direction -  mounting it on whichever edge/hand of the door you wish.  The beveled latch rides the lipped keeper from either handing.  Latch is restored and complete with original brown swirl mineral knobs that did not use a side-knob screw.  The lock side knob is pinned directly onto the spindle while the off-side knob mounts into the speical patented rosette which keeps it in place when mouinted.  Knobss can be adjusted for door thickness of minimum 1" to maximum 1 3/4".   Latch measures 2 3/4" high x 3 3/4" and has a night latch seen at the top which locks the door knobs to allow privacy.  Keeper is original measuring 1" across.  Restored, complete, and ready to install.
