Seller: room.8.vintage (1,617) 100%, Location: Downham Market Norfolk UK, Ships to: GB, Item: 262700808812 Welcome to Room 8 Interiors! Specialising in interesting vintage, antique & very often unique period items including lighting, furniture, advertising & decorative pieces. Now also online & on Instagram at room.8.interiorsA 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! Any questions, please do ask (07415 154 914, John). Further photographs available on request & always feel free to request a detailed condition report. Thanks for looking & please do check out our other items! Product Type: Cabinets, Original/Reproduction: Original, Age: 1800-1899
