Scott: Don't have a clue. Can't you at least give us dimensions?

Good point, Bill. I know it kind of looks like a parking meter, but the dimensions are actually 3/4" wide (at widest point) and 2" long.

This appears to be a over complicated keychain of some sorts... my guess is that, if you insert a peg into the hole in the slot and pull down, the center rod goes with it and allows you to insert keys on either side of the ring.... the togle at the base may have had a chain to attach to a belt loop or something or other. Then again the shaft with the hole on the bottom could be rotated to pull down the center shaft.....Then again.... Not bad for a guess at 10:30pm.... I anxiously await the right answer.

Correct you are.
We have two of these. The seller represented that they were part of a valet parking key organizer. At first we thought the 1837 might relate to the parking space. Both are marked identically so we are not sure what the 1837 means.

Tiffany currenly makes a line of jewelry and accessories in a pattern called 1837, in honor of the company's first year in business. There are rings, bracelets, keychains, etc. They all say "1837," "T & Co." and I think "925" as well. I am not sure when Tiffany first started making 1837 goods, but I think it was fairly recently (past 30 years or so). Does anybody know for certain?

You can find this exact keyring for sale in the new Tiffany spring catalog, which arrived in the mail yesterday:-). It is indeed described as a valet keyholder.
