Smoke-house Lock

Smoke-house Lock

I found this smoke-house lock near an old road in Eastern Pennsylvania. It was manufactured between 1834 to 1868 by Davenport Mallory & Company, in New Haven, CT, the largest U.S. manufacturer of locks at the time. The main use for the locks was to secure smoke houses and tobacco drying houses.
