This is one of the most unusual Locks I have ever seen! On the front is a spider web design with a keyhole and a brass knob. On the other side has one knob but  no keyhole. There are two knobs with an extension which when turned go up and down to lock into something. We have the original key.  Nobody knows what it was originally.  I have had many experts look at it and nobody can figure what kind of lock it is. Great addition to an antique hardware collection. Price upon request
