A highly unusual early antique cast iron strong box / safe.
A wonderful example in thick iron throughout, adorned with large hobnail style rivets & flanked by large brass carry handles, the door with a hinged lock escutcheon. Extremely well made, with it's original key & on an ebonised wooden stand, the door closes tightly & locks with a satisfying 'click'. An unusual, decorative & very original example!
Likely late 18th century.
Wear commensurate with age, good overall, unrestored, lock in full working order.
Collection from our warehouse in Downham Market (PE38) preferred, UK courier service may be possible (too heavy for regular post), please enquire for details.
