Nuremberg chest or privateer chest in riveted iron plates.

Beautiful polychrome still present of birds and flowers in varied and bright colors.

Opening the chest reveals its beautiful original ornamental plate finely chiseled with four mermaids each holding a flower. Discreet cutting of two hearts. A crutch in an arc of a circle holds the cover.

Lock system with 6 bolts which made it inviolable, its key opening the mechanism. Small box inside for more precious items that can be opened with a second key.

Imposing wrought iron side carrying handles.

This safe has a very unusual padlock on these privateer chests. This precious piece of chiseled ironwork opens with a key with a particular bit and adds additional security.

Safe equipped with a complex lock system that served as a mobile safe. The one we are presenting is larger than average in size and weight.

Provenance Nuremberg region, Germany.

17th century. Original polychromy.
