In the 1960s, hammered iron hardware for the kitchen and elsewhere was the rage. Here is a cabinet bar latch from that era. It is meant to keep cabinet doors from swinging open. The bar-side of the latch is fastened to the right-side cabinet door, and the keeper side is on the opposite left side. When the bar is placed in the keeper, both doors will not swing open. The two halves are placed approximately 1/2 to one-inch apart. Each back plate,measures 2 1/2 inches long and 5/8 inches wide. The original screws are included.
