Ultra Rare, Circa 1887 Chubb Salesman Sample Antique Floor Safe. The safe is all cast iron with a working key lock door with key. The safe is complete and works perfectly. The safe retains its original solid brass miniature ID badge from Chubb with original markings. It has a double interior draw set up inside. The Salesman sample has a truly unique miniaturized locking mechanism that is also exactly the same as the Chubbs full size floor safe. It has 7 active bolts in the door. In this unique set up the key does not extend and retract the locking bolts. It is the solid brass miniature pull knob that performs that function. When the key is turned it then allows the pull knob to rotate thus retracting or extending the bolts. It is amazing that this entire mechanism could be miniaturized this small.
