Handsome and rare strongbox from Spain of very good size. Made out of wrought iron on wood with two working locks. In front of these locks there is an extra wrought iron cover, that could also be locked with a padlock. This piece probably kept safe and dry some very important documents and items for the owner. We believe it is highly likely that 3 people were needed to open the box (because of the 3 locks). Apart from it being a rare and unique piece, it is very beautiful and a great example of an historic piece.
Spain, around 1650-1700. Weathered, old repairs. This item can be sent to the UK for Euros 60.
