Latches

Thumb latches were ubiquitous before the Industrial Revolution.  These came in infinite variations, with two major categories -- Suffolk and Norfolk.  Suffolk handles are forged from one bar with a cusp or flat part on the upper and lower ends.  These were more common during Colonial times and in early America.  Norfolk thumb latches have a plate with the handle attached.  These were much more common after sheet metal became readily available in the late 1700's.
