Rounded Furniture Locks are a widely used 20th century style used on drawers and doors hinged on left. Their polished steel construction and light weight are authentic to the late 1800's into the 1900's. These are an early style "machine" lock easily installed in mortises cut by routers or machinery. The lock has an angled selvedge edge seen on many furniture pieces from this time frame. Strike not included as not required.

If Using Brass Wood Screws
Care is required when installing brass screws. While these screws are the best match for most antique hardware however they are not as strong as steel screws. The screw is easily damaged if the hole is not properly prepared.
The best practice is to first drill a pilot hole. Use a drill bit slightly smaller than the overall width of the screw, including threads, to drill the hole. Then use a steel screw, the same size as brass screw, to “cut threads” in pilot hole, by screwing steel screw into and then out of hole.
