Original Antique 'SAMUEL WITHERS & Co' Safe.
A very rare Antique Samuel Withers brand small safe in a stunning working original condition.
We bring to you this very rare excellent fully restored condition Samuel Withers Brand Patent steel safe made in West Bromwich around the 1880's - 1900's.
This lovely safe features green paintwork complemented by the black door frame that is embellished with ornate hand-painted gold fine lines which elegantly frame the door. This safe has been fully re-painted from bare metal with colours that exactly match the original specification of the safe whilst leaving some slight metal patina. The safe has then been waxed to protect the paintwork and give a natural sheen and the lovely original brasswork has been highly polished.
This safe also features its manufacturer's polished brass plate of 'SAMUEL WITHERS & Co LTD WEST BROMWICH'. The amazing solid brass fist shaped 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 (1 original) and the brass keyhole escutcheon has a lovely lift up lid which covers the keyhole with the words 'SAMUEL WITHERS & Co LTD PATENTEES WEST BROMWICH' cast into the cover. Inside the safe features the original green paint colour which we have mixed and blended into the original paint to keep the safe totally authentic. The safe also has 1 internal secure locking drawer with the original paintwork to the front which matches the colour scheme of the exterior. The small drawer is complete with 2 keys (1 original) with the original brass dropper handle and lock.
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.
