Would someone mind telling me what these are called?

I have a set of swing doors that separate my dining room from my kitchen. I am re-doing the entire room, but decided to keep the doors because they are so slick looking. They have these little plunger-ball type "thingies" that are mounted at the top, which the doors lock into through a little divet that's made into the top of the door.

As a good free-market consumer, I'm replacing all my brass with Oil-Rubbed Bronze because that's the latest trend here in Texas. Would someone mind telling me what these are called so I can go buy new ones?

 

Thank you!!!!

That is known as a "Ball Door Latch" or a "Ball Door Catch". You can find them at any hardware store.

Yes, those Oil-rubbed bronze look very trendy, they are nowadays used very often. We have also implanted them at our place.
