Legends safe no. 132 is a splendid example of the style of the Napoleon III era. It was constructed for a German merchant in 1890 at Louis Philippe in Liege, Belgium. The opening unit consists of a sophisticated four-letter combination lock that was highly unusual for its time. Inside we find automatic watch winders and jewelry compartments made of glossy polished poplar bird’s eye wood. During the restoration process, the experts at Döttling intentionally chose 1890 to retain the piece’s existing traces of use and to merely harmonize them with color. They underscore the eventful history of this antique strongbox.
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.
