    Hey, Zomb—

    Nice relic! Collectors call this type of wrought iron lever lock a "smokehouse lock" or "smokie." The M W & Co. mark on the brass drop (keyhole cover) is that of Mallory, Wheeler & Company of New Haven, Connecticut. c. 1865-1910, the largest manufacturer of padlocks during that era.
