Suffolk Latch, A marriage made in Wiltshire
In the antiques `trade` a marriage is where two previously unattached things are brought together to make one. An arranged marriage if you like. In this case a wonderful handle was without it's bar and keep so we had a root around in our extensive stock of stuff awaiting restoration and found a heavy solid cast iron lift bar, keep and retainer. Everything was stripped and cleaned and refinished and here is the result. Everything is old, although there is an age difference, the handle is the oldest by far, the lift bar and sundries are of no great age but they look good together and they will work together for many years yet. An all around good quality set. Suitable for doors/gates up to 5.5 cms thick.
