Victorian Milners Luxury Safe
An Antique Milners Luxury Safe in a stunning fully restored condition.
We bring to you this very rare excellent condition early Milners Patent safe which was made around C1875-1890.
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.
This bespoke luxury safe has been fully re-painted inside and out using colours to closely match the original specification of the safe. It has been fully restored from bare metal, having been stripped and linished to ensure the highest quality refurbishment possible. The safe is painted in burgundy and black featuring black exterior bands and a burgundy centre door panel surrounded in hand painted gold leaf effect pinstripes. The inside is is finished in an 'old gold' coloured paint maintaining the original Milners Safe Co Ltd Logo on the back of the door. The safe has then been carefully lightly polished and waxed to protect the paintwork and give a natural sheen, all of the brasswork has been highly polished.
This impressive safe features the original Milners cast solid brass polished plaque. The fantastic original solid polished brass handle reminds us of a bolt action rifle as the mechanism is solid and has a satisfying latching action in a smoothly working order. The external lock is working smoothly with 2 keys, the keyhole escutcheon has a lovely covering brass cast lid with "MILNERS' SAFE POWDERPROOF SOLID LOCK LIVERPOOL & LONDON" which ensures security. Inside the safe features a halved interior for storing paper work one side and valuables on the other. The interior also has 1 locking jewellery drawer with brass knob and is complete with a solid polished brass 6 lever lock and 2 keys to work it. Inside the safe we have also added maroon full grain leather gold tooled removable liners to keep your valuables and the safe itself protected from scratches or damage when stored inside.
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, 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.
Please note; This item is in excellent 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. 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.
