1960s First Aid wall cabinet

Vintage 1950/60s bathroom cabinet made by 'Metlex', has been used as first aid cabinet during its lifetime.
Designed to be wall mounted with 4 holes in back to hang on screws fixed into wall; could also be used simply as a storage box to rest on a shelf or other surface.
Exterior painted off white, original part left at top with old red "First Aid" lettering, obviously added to indicate its previous purpose.
Lock to close with key.
Interior has one glass shelf with further holes in side to add more if desired (holes only visible from interior).
A lovely character bathroom cabinet which would suit a vintage 50s or 60s, rustic, industrial, or mid century inspired interior: could also be used in a kitchen.

"First aid" lettering has slight damage but colour still bright, small marks on background here. Exterior has new paint but retains a few bumps from previous use. Interior original and clean apart from some very slight marks at bottom. This all adds vintage character rather than detracting from this lovely cabinet. glass shelf inside good. See photographs for further detail.

(measurements taken at widest point of exterior and to nearest cm)
