While this latch is an original piece of hardware to this Frank Lloyd Wright designed home, the example that you have provided is a very good match!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Much of the original brass hardware and many of the brass door screens still exist in the house, like on this entrance to the living room from the main terrace.
Doors and windows. Original doors and windows tend to be made from solid wood, and are in keeping with the overall proportions and style of the house. If you can keep them, do — old windows can be treated to provide better insulation. If you must replace badly damaged doors or windows, you may want to look into salvaged replacements from other older homes. Otherwise look for new pieces that match the size and proportions of the old ones to maintain your home's character.Hardware. Original cabinet latches, door hardware and drawer pulls offer a glimpse into the original style of your home. Even if you must tear out a badly damaged cabinet or door, try to save the latches, knobs and even hinges to reuse elsewhere in the home.

Frank Wright:This home illustrates Wright's take on the democratic American home. According to William Allin Storrer, the author of The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion, Wright's "Usonian" homes were designed to appeal to average-income families. They generally had an L-shaped floor plan, with the living room, bedrooms and bathrooms taking up one wing and the kitchen (or workspace, as Wright called it) sitting in the junction.
