Antique Mallory & Wheeler MW & Co Door Latch Cherubs 1867 VictorianMallory & Wheeler Company
Here is an antique door latch from Mallory & Wheeler Company with a patent date of Dec 10, 1867. The front of the door hardware features two cherubs (at least that is what I see). The mechanism turns fine but you will notice in the images that the case is broken on the back of the latch. The body of the latch measures 3-1/2" by 1-3/4" and measurement from the widest part where the mounting holes are is 2-3/4". This item weighs just over 1/2 lb.
