The Swiss Federal Bank was one of the largest banks in Switzerland soon after its creation in 1863. It had branches in Berne, Zurich, Basle, Lausanne, Geneva, Vevey, La Chaux-de-Fonds and St-Gallen. Of all its vaults, the only that survived in its original form is the Lausanne vault which we acquired in 2004. According to our research, the lost vaults of Basle, Berne and Zurich had similar or even identical Fichet doors, as you can see in the pictures below.
