  The Suffolk Thumb Latch is a style of latch distinguished by its lack of a single backplate or 
escutcheon; instead it features two cusps joined by the handle.


  In America its use was widespread in the mid-nineteenth century, though colonists in New England 
had used the Suffolk latch for at least a century. The streamlined pattern made it quick and 
simple to forge, even from a single iron bar. Originally the latch was imported from England or 
forged by American ironworkers imitating British styles; however the simple design allowed 
blacksmiths to create styles uniquely American.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.  All sales final.
