Wrought Iron Italian Antique Hobnail Safe Strongbox Bar Cabinet

About

Northern Italian antique safe with all-around hobnails, dated circa 1790-1840, probably from the Piedmont region, that features amazing workmanship and decorations made with burin incisions techniques, typical from the period. This safe, its locking mechanism and the 2 keys are beautiful examples of late 18th-early 19th century Italian master blacksmith craftmanship. It was probably used inside secretaires pieces. The safe is in excellent working condition, has been completely cleaned and polished. The opening mechanism works with two keys and a special hook to activate the release hidden behind a frontal decor to expose the key holes. A specific sequence, with secret levers and tricks, is to be followed with the two keys and the hook allowing to unlock the safe and open the door. The interior of the safe is actually empty with one wooden shelf, but on request, at additional cost, the interior can be completely customized either with watch winders, or as cigar humidor cabinet and cocktail dry bar or simply lined in leather with lighting and shelves.
