Large primitive old iron hook for latching barn/stable doors or farm gates. This hook also has the heavy old blacksmith forged staple for either mounting the hook through the hook eye or using as the hook's catch. The heavy iron staple measures over 3 1/2" long and 1 5/8" across. This latch is from an old farm estate and is an original antiques hook, not a newer reproduction!
This latch measure about 6 1/2" long, the hook is over 2 1/2" high and the eye is 3/4" across the inside. The iron rod is 1/2" thick.
This primitive old barn door latch has a great patina of age.
