Victorian Vintage Whitfield & Co Safe. Very heavy solid cast iron safe. It locks fine as long as the key is lined up into the lock due to its age and wear and tear.Measurements are approximate: 62cm High, 48cm wide and 46cm depth. Has been in the family for over 50 years securing the takings from a local family strawberry business. Bought locally 2nd hand from a pub where it was used for many many years. We have recently moved the safe to another room. We have managed to get the safe unlocked but it was a struggle.
It obviously didnt like being moved so the lock may of dropped out of line. Update: we have had the lock professionally refurbished. It needed a couple of springs.
The safe locks and unlocks easily now. I have added that its antique as I have been advised it was made in the early 1920s.
