Suffolk Bean Thumb Latch

Here at Seven Pines Forge I handforge one of the great treasures of colonial wrought iron the Suffolk thumblatch. The Suffolk latch was common place during the 18th and 19th century. The sheer simplicity and balance of design make it a most desirable item to see and use. Originally made by English blacksmiths and imported here , the American blacksmiths soon began producing these latches . Geographic influence in the design of the Suffolk latch offered many different cusps and handle designs that often presisted for a century or more. I take great pride in reproducing these latches by hand for your home.

Price:
$65.00 (latch & thumber)
$90.00 (complete latch set)
