    Not sure, but perhaps the key bow (bit you hold) is not original and has been repaired at some time, the key bit reminds me of Kromer, but I am only guessing.

    99% sure that'll be a Tabernacle Safe key.
    Perhaps the double bitted versions on your side of the pond were from Italy or elsewhere in Europe, i really don't know.
    It's strange, as even the most stunning ornate examples I worked on over here only had single bit keys with pretty basic block safe locks.
