Ladies and gentlemen, the masterpiece is that object that distinguishes the entire career of an excellent craftsman.
In this case, we are looking at a high level masterpiece.
A late 19th century lock in a book-shaped elm wood box.
The lock allows up to 6 opening modes.
Entirely handmade; the two keys, once properly inserted inside the lock, allow the two lateral pistons to slide, thus opening the box.
The box is perfect for every type of surface and very heavy.
It has a strong visual impact both vertically and horizontally.
The item allows the storage of high-value banknotes or small gemstones.
We have deliberately attached photos of the internal gears, to give you a better understanding of the virtuosity of the artist who made it over 100 years ago.

An object for classy interiors and demanding collectors.
Happy bidding everyone!

    Le colis rapidement envoyé, bien emballé mais la porte gauche de l'armoire était partiellement dévissée, ce qui n'était pas visible sur les photos. Est le transport la cause?
