This good sized latch has the flashed copper treatment which dates it from 1900 to the 1920s. Because this flashed copper trend apparently lasted for a relatively short time, that hardware is scarce and hard to find in good condition. This is the only casement window latch we have in the flashed copper.
Casement windows were ones that were mounted on hinges. The latch pinned the two windows together so the panes would not swing open.
The keeper (or catcher) on this latch is not original to the turn latch. It is flashed copper and is a keeper for a casement latch, but it originally was paired with a smaller latch. Therefore, it is slightly smaller. It does, however, work.
The levered latch’s back plate measures 2 inches by 1 1/8 inches. There are four holes in the plate, 3/4 inch apart across and 1 1/2 inches apart vertically. The lever handle is 2 1/4 inches long. The latch projects from the surface 1 3/4 inches. The keeper measures 1 7/8 inches by 1/2 inch. The hole centers are 1 3/8 inches.
The latch is used, but in good condition. Screws will be included.
