Antique Bauche Cast Iron Safe from Northeastern France, circa 1870

$1,300

About

This antique incombustible cast iron safe is from Northeastern France (Gueux, Marne). Inside, it still has its original felt with the maker’s name on a front mounted plaque. This antique French safe will be wonderful for valuables or as a decorative accessory. These are sought after by collectors and sometimes refinished. We have applied some iron polish, but for the most part, we have left ours as we found it in France.
