1800s Safe France
Technically speaking, a safe is a secure lockable box used for storing valuable objects against theft and/or damage from fire. Modern versions are usually a hollow cuboid or cylinder, with one face being removable or hinged to form a door. However, back in the 1800s, things were a bit different as you’re about to see. This particular safe from France requires multiple keys and moving several ordered switches before the door pops open. Read more for a video and additional information.



On a related note, did you know that English inventors Charles and Jeremiah Chubb in Wolverhampton, England, received a patent for a burglar-resisting safe and began a production of safes back in 1835. The Chubb brothers had made locks since 1818, and believe it or not, Chubb Locks was an independent company until 2000 when it was sold to Assa Abloy.
