Small antique safes with good original paint and ornate graphics are very hard to find. This beautiful little Victor, standing only 20.5″ high by 14″ wide, is a gem. The red emblem on the inside door panel is uncommon, but not rare. It lists all of Victor’s patents which were used on the safe. The most recent patent shown is 1889, so the safe was probably built before 1895.
Elaborate graphics and hand painted outdoor scenes on such a small safe are rare. Rarer still is that the original paint is still intact. The pictures shown here are not as sharp as I would like, because the safe was sold before we could even clean it. If you have a small antique that you no longer want, or if you would like to buy one, please contact us at Hoogerhyde Safe.
