    What is it this should be a good one

    Thinking some medieval door lock maybe? It obviously looks like it was actually used. The two pieces are able to slide back and fourth

    The use of round nails makes me think that it is early 20th century at the oldest. Still a very cool find though, have no clue what it was used for. I bet someone will though.

    My thinking is that it's Tibetan or Malaysian in design.
    As you suggested, possibly a slide latch for a wooden storage cabinet or a chest.
    As coinman123 mentioned, most likely 20thc.

    It really looks impressive. But I think this item is not older than the 19th century.

    The backing looks like some kind of particle board. I'm also thinking 20th C tourist item.

    But I have no idea of it's intended use.

    Early Tetris prototype?

    Does it have holes that go all the way through, where it would be mounted to a wall ?

    JTW, I see you're using an IPhone 7, and it should be taking
    superb images.

    Couple suggestions. First, you might clean the lens, as I believe
    there is a film on it. Soft cloth, couple drops of ISO alcohol and
    a couple drops of water on the cloth, then wipe. Should clean
    it up nicely.

    Also, try taking pics in natural light when you can. Florescent
    lights (CFL's) cause the image to be yellowed.

    Cleaned up on of the images a bit, but couldn't get it as good
    as it should be.

    Yeah, I also noticed the pics were not up to jtw's usual standards. But I didn't want to be a nudzh...

    Which part has the holes in, the main central bit or the back parts? Just trying to figure out what part would slide and which way up it would be.
