Found this yesterday at a 1800?s cellar hole that had occupancy into the 1930?s. Sort of looks like a lock assembly, but the dog bone opening is too big for any key I can think of.

Any ideas?

That is a head scratcher! Kinda sorta reminds me of a rolltop desk lock.

A trunk latch would be my guess. I'm thinking a large version of a typical suitcase latch.
