Rare transitional surface mount American door latch in cast iron patented circa 1842.  The open work mechanism is similar to the early thumb latches, but operates with knobs rather than a thumb latch handle.  The cast iron door knob operates the bar which moves up and down and rests in the keeper mounted on the jamb.  Off-side is a matching cast iron knob and large plain iron rosette pictured below.  Open work side measures 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" high and knobs are 2" in diameter.  Rosette is 2 1/4".  Latch is reversible, restored, and complete and will fit a door from 1 1/4" to 2 1/2" thick.  A privacy latch (mounted from the top hole of the staple) can be flipped 180 degrees to rest against the outer end of the bar and prevent the latch from being opened from outside - shown in the locked for privacy position below (second photo from left).  Restored to black finish and complete with all parts as pictured below right - ready to install.
