This Legends safe is probably the most impressive monument of antique safe construction history. Its size and its history are both breathtaking, having been discovered during demolition work in a hidden cellar vault in Monza, Italy. The safe, which reveals extraordinary technical finesse and incredible engineering standards for its time, bears the gravure of its builder Joannes Porrus (Giovanni Porro), the date of construction 1770 and the abbreviation MLNI for Milan (Milano). 1770 Its massive iron bolt work and highly complicated trick closures made it a unique high-security safe in its day. To transfer this standard to today’s standards, the restorers at Döttling fitted the safe with the latest security technologies, including an “intelligent” defense system.
The number and availability of high-quality antique safes are exceedingly limited, but there are no limits to the interior fittings of a Legends safe. Whether fitted with humidors, cocktail bars, jewelry compartments, watch winders, collector cabinets, or lockable drawers, the only premise is your own personal passion.
We realize every well-conceived fitment variation with the aid of state-of-the-art technologies and the finest craftsmanship.
All of the Legends safes by Döttling are alike in only one aspect: they are the grand expression of a lifestyle reserved for only a few.
