I only want to know its value and if it's an original or a copy

Yes, I identify your key. This is King Alfonso XIII Privy Chamber decorative key from early 20C. I`ve seen exactly the same key at a local auction house around 2 years ago. It was valued between £40-£60 and sold for £70. It is an original item from the early 20C, but they do appear at auctions and antiques shops, ocasionally.
