  • About dealer
A very sturdy portable steel strong box or fire box, probably made in France in the early 20th century. It was made to hold valuable items such as money, jewellery or important documents, protecting them from theft or fire. It is made out of sturdy steel plates and is very strong. It has an attractive hinged handle to the top. The lid opens with a sturdy hinge that extends along the whole length of the box. The inside is painted a dark red.

The box comes with its original key and the locking mechanism is still fully functional. To unlock, the key is turned clockwise twice. The box is locked by pushing the lid down with no need to turn the key.

There is a little wear to the paint inside the lid of the box.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
