Product Description

Original Antique "JACOB CARTWRIGHT" Fully Restored Luxury safe.

A rare Jacob Cartwright safe in a stunning fully restored working condition.

We bring to you this very rare excellent condition "Cartwright" Patent steel safe made in West Bromwich by the maker Jacob Cartwright of Roebuck Street, West Bromwich in around C1888. This fantastic quality and very secure safe is truly a museum piece and has had no expense spared in its restoration.

This lovely safe features original specification paintwork featuring 2 tone paintwork to exactly match the original colours. The safe is finished in predominantly black with a burgundy centre door. The paintwork is single stage paint (not lacquered) exactly as it would have been originally. The safe is complemented by the ornate traditionally hand-painted white and red coach lines which elegantly frames the door and hinges. This safe has been fully restored from bare metal, having been stripped and linished to ensure the highest quality refurbishment possible. The inside has been painted with colours that exactly match the original and the lovely original brasswork has then been highly polished.

This safe features its manufacturer's polished brass plaque of 'JACOB CARTWRIGHT MAKER ESTABLISHED 1844 WEST BROMWICH'. The amazing solid brass handle reminds us of a bolt action rifle as the mechanism is sturdy and has a satisfying latching action in a smoothly working order. The external lock is working smoothly with 2keys (1 original) and the brass keyhole escutcheon has a lovely sliding lid with the words 'IMPROVED INVIOLABLE LOCK' cast into the lid which elegantly covers the keyhole when not in use.

The inside of the safe has been re painted to exactly match the original, complete with red embellishments. This safe unusually is complete with its original testimonial from 1888 on the back of the door and is in almost perfect readable condition. The safe also has 1 internal secure locking drawer with the original polished brass handle and working brass lock with 2 keys (1 original). The drawer also unusually has burl walnut wood effect painted scrumbling to the drawer front completed with a white coach line which mimics the external door.

Inside the safe we have also added burgundy full grain leather removable liners to keep your valuables and the safe itself protected from scratches or damage when items are stored inside.

This safe is ideal for storing important paperwork, house deeds, birth certificates, passports, cash,jewellery or anything else of value and is obviously rather safe. This safe would look fabulous in a loft style apartment or vintage themed home and would certainly be an interesting talking point for guests. This item could also be used as a small coffee table with storage.

Please note; This item is in very good condition for its age but will obviously have the odd blemish and scuff here and there. However, we feel that this adds to the charm and authenticity of the item with it being Antique.
