This lovely safe features lovely deep Burgundy glossy polished paintwork complemented by the ornate traditionally hand-painted black and red coach lines which elegantly frames the door. This safe has been fully re-painted inside and out with colours that exactly match the original scheme of the safe whilst leaving some slight metal patina.

This safe alsofeatures its manufacturer's polished finely cast brass plaque of 'C.H.WILSON & Co MANUFACTURERS PATENT FIRE AND BURGLAR PROOF BIRMINGHAM. LONDON'. The amazing solid brass handle reminds usof a bolt action rifle as the mechanism is sturdy and has a satisfying latchingaction in a smoothly working order. The external lock is working smoothly with 2keys and the brass keyhole escutcheon has a lovely sliding lid with the words 'IMPROVED INVIOLABLE LOCK' cast into the lid which elegantly covers thekeyhole when not in use. Inside thesafe features the original C.H.Wilson transfer which exactly matches the cast exterior plaque for authenticity.
