Images A and B show iron keys that were used in either door locks, a padlocks, or hasp locks. Images C and D are both spigot keys. They opened a cylindrical lock like that shown in Image E. This kind of lock was typically used to secure small barrels of liquor in taverns. The remaining images show keyhole escutcheons (F-G) and keyhole covers (H-I). Although all of these served a decorative purpose, they also functioned as protection for doors, especially those on the exterior of a building.
