Victorian window latches comes in all styles. This one is quite different! There are two pieces (a latch and a keeper), both have a pattern in the cast iron. The latch works by a swing arm that lifts up and swivels slightly. The arm has a push-button mechanism that snaps around the keeper’s peg. When snapped into lock position, the window (or sash) will not move.
The latch’s mounting plate measures 2 1/8 inches by 78 inch. The half-circle shaped keeper measures 2 1/8 inches by one inch. The hole centers on both pieces is 1 1/2 inches.
The latch is marked with the words: “PAYSON PAT JAN 4, JUNE 3, 1876”
Screws will be included.
