A gorgeous early antique strongbox/safe. A wonderful & unique little safe with a fantastic industrial look about it & a beautiful patina. With a timber & studded sheet metal construction and working lock & key with contrasting brass lock escutcheon. A difficult thing to date, I'd say it was late 19th century but could well be earlier, a lovely, unusual piece either way.
The safe measure around 43cm high, 28cm wide & 20cm deep & is in solid but worn, untouched condition as pictured. The lower edge of the sheet metal has a few corroded areas which has left a few holes around the base(see pics, in no danger of getting any worse as wood is solid beneath) & the inside has had a historic case of woodworm(dead on arrival but well treated as a precaution). The base / inner appears to be sand filled & leaks a little when moved about(it is only a little), the exterior retains traces of original paint on all panels though on the left hand & rear panel have near solid paint. The key works(double turn to lock) as it should but sometimes needs a 'jiggle'. That said, it's a fantastic little safe & is ready to use!
