    Nuremberg" strongbox in polychrome wrought iron, revealing a complication mechanism activated by several pennes.
    The sides are fitted with handles for transport.
    The front is adorned with a false lock entrance designed to deceive.
    The trunk is further secured by a bar blocking the opening.
    These safes were designed to store important documents, valuables and money during land and sea journeys. One of the features of the Nuremberg safes was their complex mechanism, which made them virtually inviolable for their time. Made in Germany in the Nuremberg region
    This chest does not come with a key.
    Clever system for uncovering the lock entrance on the top, by moving a rivet on the top plate.
