This is a Oval Nickel Plated 1921 Patent Recording Safe issued by Lloyds Bank Limited complete with key and box, Circa 1930/40s and used until approx Circa 1960s. A Home Safe is generally accepted to mean a money box issued by a Bank, Building Society or other institution between 1900 and 1960s. The Home Safe would be issued to a account holder but not the key, this was held onto by the bank, so that when the home safe was full it had to be returned to the Bank, who would then open it and deposit the money into the account, although many banks specified that the money remain in the account for a certain time, there were some that allowed instant access, but not many!! This particular example is stamped to the base with Patent Number 168,828 and the Patent Date - JUNE 11, 1921, this patent was granted to The Automatic Recording Safe Co. Ltd of England, it is a oval type measuring 3.75" in length, with seperate compartments for all coin slots (Penny or Half Crown, Shilling, x2 slots for Six Pence and Three Pence) there is also a closed off slot stamped with the details - INSERT NOTES THROUGH BASE; a updated version as the very early examples had a slot to the side for notes. The top of the home safe has a oval riveted disc around the lock which is embossed with the details - LLOYDS BANK LIMITED - NO. 60739 (Please see all Photos) The Nickel Plated Home Safe measures 3.75" by 1.875", with a height of 2.375" and is in Excellent Used Conditon, the box measures 4" by 2.625", with a height of 2" and is also in Excellent Used Condition, though there is a little bit of wear from use and storage (please refer to photos).
