M129 - RARE 1880 Iron Trunk Latches


VERY RARE Antique cast iron trunk latches. Marked "Pat. Oct 12, '80" (1880). Yes, they are rare. The only pair of this type that I've ever had in 50 years of trunk restoration! Sometimes called Latches, Catches, Drawbolts, or Fasteners.
Cast Iron, very strong and still work well. See all pictures as part of the description.

These were patented in 1880 by Alexander Frankel who worked for a large trunk maker, Jacob Lagowitz, one of the first large trunk companies in Newark, NJ. The complete details of the patented latches are contained in the patent document.. a copy will be included with your purchase! These are unique as they have a built in spring which holds the bail (moving piece) in place.

Collect or reuse! Great for antique trunks, chests, tool boxes, etc. Install with trunk nails, rivets, or screws.

SIZE: 3 3/4"high x 1 7/8" wide
