Key Germany

Antique skeleton key- NEED INFO!!?

I got an antique skeleton key at an antique store the other day. It's long and simple. The "teeth" part of the key that turns the lock is triangle shaped.
The top end has the name "TAYLOR" on one side, while on the other side it says "G0502". Then at the end, on the part of the key that goes in the lock it says "Germany".

I've been looking online for info. Is "taylor" the name brand, or is it the name of the person who owned it?...
What does G0502 stand for?
How can i tell how old it is?
I know i didnt provide that much information to go by, but any info you can provide would be appreciated. :)

Taylor would have been the manufacturer - who made it.
G0502 would have been the serial number or product number to identify the key.
Germany would have been where it was made. But since it is written Germany, not Deutschland, I'd guess it was made for the English speaking market or it signifies the parent company was located in Germany.

One way to find out how old it is, is to talk to a locksmith or a collector of locks and keys. He/she may be able to identify certain things about the key that can tell you the age.

If you are willing to do the research yourself, there are websites online dealing with antique keys and identifying them. It takes a bit of effort, but might be rewarding. Take a really good photo of the key, and all markings like the number and ask someone on the sites if they recognise it. Don't send the photo until you ask them if they mind helping you.
