WICKWAR & CO.6 POLAND ST. W.
A Small late Victorian Dark Blue Leather Despatch Box with a recessed brass end handle, the top framed with a gilt line and embossed with the initials A.P. The interior with raised sides retains its original dark blue velvet lining and gilded brass fittings.
An interesting feature of the Bramah lock is that the box can be closed and remain unlocked. To open it the front is moved to the right. The key is used to lock the front so that it cannot be moved. This means you may leave the key inside the box without fear of being locked out.
The maker's name & address are stamped inside on the left of the lock, and and on the lock itself.
Please note that this price may NOT include delivery charges which the seller may charge extra for.
