Product Description

Original Antique "PHILLIPS & SON" Fully Restored Luxury safe.

A rare Phillips safe in a stunning fully restored working condition.

We bring to you this very rare excellent condition "Phillips" patent steel safe made by the maker Phillips & Son Lock and Safe Co LTD of Birmingham in around C1930. This fantastic quality and very secure safe is truly a museum piece and has had no expense spared in its 'nut & bolt' full restoration completely carried out in house by Lincoln Restorations.

This beautiful safe features its Green highly glazed polished paintwork complemented by its very ornate hand painted double gloss white coach lines which flow into its ornate geometric corner design which elegantly frames the door. The safe features single stage paintwork meaning the paint is polished and not lacquered exactly as the safe would have been when new. The safe has then additionally been skilfully sign-written with the makers name and the date of establishment. This safe has been fully restored from bare metal, having been stripped and linished to ensure the highest quality refurbishment possible and the lovely original brass-work has then been restored and highly polished.

This safe features its manufacturer's polished brass plaque of "PHILLIPS & SON LOCK & SAFE CO LTD. FIRE FALL AND THEFT RESISTING MANUFACTURERS. BIRMINGHAM ". The am azing 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 2 keys and the brass keyhole escutcheon has a lovely pivoting lid with the words "LEVER LOCK" which elegantly covers the keyhole when not in use.

The i nside of the safe has been re painted to exactly match the original colour. This safe is complete with a gold manufacturer transfer of Phillips 'Bulldog Brand, Fire resisting, complete with a silhouette of the bulldog logo' to the inside of the door.

To match the paintwork theme our upholstery department has made high quality Gold tooled Green full grain leather removable liner to the inside to keep your valuables and the safe itself protected from scratches or damage when items are stored inside.

We have included an automatic LED light inside the safe which comes on when the door is opened or detects movement. The light is easily removed, has a long life Li-ion battery and is charged simply via USB.

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.

  • Victorian Table

    I bought a restored Victorian table from here. When it arrived, it was wrapped incredibly well in bubble wrap, and had obviously been recently polished. It was immaculate. Friendly service, and a good price. Would definitely use again.
