Original Antique "SENTRY SAFE" Fully Restored Luxury safe.
A rare Sentry safe in a stunning fully restored working condition.
We bring to you this very rare excellent condition "Sentry Safe" patent steel safe made by the maker Safes LTD of West Bromwich 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 lovely safe features original specification Green paintwork completely colour matched to the original colours and design. 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 cream coloured coach lines which elegantly frames the door exactly as it would have been. We have pictures of the before restoration available at request if interested. This safe has been fully restored from bare metal, having been stripped and linished to ensure the highest quality refurbishment possible. The lovely original brasswork has then been highly polished.
This safe features its manufacturer's polished brass plaque of "SENTRY SAFE SOLE MAKERS SAFES LTD. WEST BROMWICH ENGLAND". 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 2 keys (both original) and the brass keyhole escutcheon has a lovely pivoting lid which elegantly covers the keyhole when not in use.
The inside of the safe has been re painted to exactly match the original colour. This safe unusually is complete with its original transfer plaque and is in clean fantastic and easily readable condition. The safe has 1 internal secure locking drawer painted to mimic the front door and complete with cream coach-lines. The drawer also features its original polished brass knob and solid brass polished lock complete with 2 keys which are both original.
To match the exterior our upholstery department has made high quality green full grain leather removable liners to the shelf and inside the drawer 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.
