1930 Framed Triple Swiss Bank Lock & Door

1930 Framed Triple Swiss Bank Lock & Door

Shadow Box 55x70x11cm with authentic safe deposit box door and lock. Provenance: former UBS head office in Place St-Francois in Lausanne, in use from circa 1930 to 2004. The door measures 7x33cm and the lock 4x13cm. Both have been fully restored. Brass components have been hand-polished and lacquered to preserve their shiny look. The patented triple lock mechanism is mounted behind a custom laser-cut acryl cover. Presented with the polished internal bolt and the 2 original nickel-plated client keys, 2 inside frames with eggshell mat and a 1923 architectural drawing of the bank's facade and 1922 safe deposit vault plan. Door side and brass cover hand polished and lacquered, door surface repainted to original cream color. Both keys, the lock, the lock box and the door all bear original matching numbers - 5 times in all. With authenticity certificate and copy of the 1919 patent. Sober and elegant, very impressive in an office.
