Product Description

Original Antique Large Victorian Milners' 212 Fully Restored Luxury Safe.

An Antique Milners safe in a stunning working condition.

We bring to you this very rare excellent condition Milners Patent Safe made from steel in the Victorian period around C1880. This classic Heritage style safe is a very secure, quarter tonne heavy-duty (260kg) safe featuring a half-inch plate front door, powder proof lock and will resist fires.

The Milners safes were some of the best in its class and at one stage regarded to be one of the largest safe manufacturers in the world. The Milners name still continues today as Chatwood-Milners under the Chubb group brand since 1958.

The 212 patent from Milner is not just a trademark, it represents a fire-resistant mixture of sand, sawdust and alum crystals that were injected into the sides of the box. During a fire, these contents owing to the chemical reaction of the ingredients were guaranteed not to heat up beyond 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

This fantastic quality and very secure safe is truly a museum piece and has had no expense spared in its restoration. This safe is truly a one off bespoke item and has had many hours spent on its full refurbishment process. To the buyer pictures throughout its thorough restoration are available upon request.

This lovely safe features original specification paintwork featuring 2 tone paintwork to match the original colours and design. The safe is finished in predominantly black with a green door and black arch moulding. 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 gold coach lines which elegantly frames the door hinges and moulding. 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 stripped to bare metal and re painted with colours that exactly match the original and the lovely original brasswork has then been highly polished. The locking mechanism has been fully serviced to ensure a smooth operation for many more decades and is as good as the day it was made.

This lovely safe features the rare original manufacturer's solid brass polished plate of "MILNERS 212 PATENT THEIF-RESISTING". The fantastic original solid polished brass handle reminds us of a bolt action rifle as the mechanism is solid and has a satisfying latch action in a smoothly working order. The external lock is working smoothly with 2 keys (1 original and branded Milners'), the keyhole escutcheon has a lovely covering brass cast lid with "MILNERS' SAFE POWDERPROOF SOLID LOCK LIVERPOOL & LONDON" which ensures security.

This safe is ideal commercial or home offices for storing important paperwork, house deeds, birth certificates, passports, cash or even jewellery and is obviously very safe, fireproof, powder and theft-proof.

This safe would look fabulous in a loft style apartment or vintage themed home and would certainly be an interesting talking point for guests.

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

Please note; This item is in excellent condition for its age but may have the odd slight blemish and scuff here and there, however, we feel that this adds to the charm and authenticity of the item with it being antique. We recommend protecting your flooring underneath this safe as the safe will be dirty on the bottom and could damage surfaces because of the large weight.

Also note this item is very heavy (260kg), so please see our delivery section near the end of our listing.
