Money box, safe, for important items or documents. From Germany, made in steel and wrought cast iron. Colour: brown, with lock.
This item was part of World War 2 and was found in a Jewish house, under the basement. The house was adapted into a butcher's shop. The family hid this money box before leaving home to travel with the famous train Westerbork Nederland that brought them to the Auschwitz camp in Poland, arrested by the Germans and they weren’t able to come back and lost their lives.
Iron lock with very old mechanism, antique style, identical to locks used in prisons and camps. Lock with antique style steel key with cylindrical body.
The lock’s front shows an Imperial crown, writing on the back: Made in Germany, take a careful look at the photos.
The lock works perfectly to this day. There are two keys, but only one has the perfect fit for the lock, the other is smaller
In good condition, completely original, clean, but not touched or restored, as found
The new owner will receive the lot neatly and well packaged, shipped with tracking and insurance.
