A traditional Suffolk Latch designed for internal or external doors. The simplicity of the design is matched by the simplicity of the mechanism, using the natural weight of the iron latch to act as a spring operated by the thumb. This is a time old design that needs no embellishment, and would be perfect for a cottage or country style home.
It is designed for internal use, and as such, is simply finished with iron paste. However, it is also available for an external door where an weather proof finish is needed. This option has been zinc coated and subsequently etched to give it a natural, yet reliable finish. Please get in contact should you have any questions about this finish.
In either case, the latch is supplied with fittings and will be made to fit the width of your door specifically. For this reason, I require you to state the width of your door in the box provided.
This is the best purchase I have ever made on Etsy. What a wonderful shop! The work is absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Tom!
UK Postage: I offer FREE POSTAGE on most of my items. All items are sent via second class mail, where possible, to ensure the cost is kept to a minimum. For larger orders I use ParcelForce express48, which is a tracked service and you will be supplied with a tracking number upon request.
International Shipping: Most orders are sent via the Royal Mail International Standard service, which aims for delivery within 5-7 days. Larger orders are sent via Parcel Force Global Value which states delivery between 5-8 days. Both these services are UNTRACKED. In my experience, during busy periods (esp. Christmas) these services tend to be delayed so please bear this in mind when ordering and leave plenty of time.
In some case multiple items will be split into multiple packages and sent as a single consignment.
I am happy to accommodate faster delivery requirements should you wish, but please get in touch about this BEFORE placing your order. Please note that this would affect the listed price for delivery. Alternatively, if you would like to make your own shipping arrangements then, again, get in touch before ordering.
All items are extremely well packaged and secure. In the most part they are unmarked, except for a return address which bears my company logo.

Additional return information
As with any handmade item, individual marks left by the making process are visible and, therefore, a certain level of inconsistency between pieces exists. However, should you be unsatisfied with any aspect of my work, do please get in contact. At the end of the day it is important to me that you are happy with your order.
All of my ironwork is made to the highest possible standard. Everything I sell is made by hand by me personally and therefore I am able to check the quality of everything before it leaves my workshop.
