Antique Safes/Enquiring our old safes' model and manufacturing company


Three antique safes
Three antique safes  
Hello, I just want to identify the model, year of production and name of manufacturing company of my father's safes. He got them from an old friend. He had restored them but he doesn't have any informations about the safes to sell them. I had already searched the Internet using those labels on the safes but nothing came out. Antique safes shown in Ebay are not the same with them. So, please kindly give your opinion on these. I can send more photos to your mail if necessary for this site only permits one. Thank you!

Hello Ei,

These are 19th century European safes, from England, Germany and possibly Warsaw, Poland.   Many of these safes were imported into the far east, through Singapore in the late 1800's.   Fortunately for you, you have one of the best experts in the world on many of these old safes in Singapore, so I would recommend that you contact them for more info about the safes, and on possibly selling them in your area.

They will need photos of your safe to provide any info and/or help to you.

Hope this helps,   good luck.
