This is an antique Victorian strong box by Chubb & Sons, circa 1880.

This strong box is in good untouched condition, but we cannot find the key!

Chubb & Sons firm was established by Jeremiah Chubb who arrived in Wolverhampton to open a lock-making factory in 1818. In 1820 he opened a factory in Temple Street, and in 1836 moved to St James' Square. In 1838 the works moved to Railway Street on the site of the Old Workhouse.

A Chubb detector lock is a type of lever tumbler lock with an integral security feature, a form of relocker, which frustrates unauthorised access attempts and indicates to the lock's owner that it has been interfered with. When someone tries to pick the lock or to open it using the wrong key, the lock is designed to jam in a locked state until (depending on the lock) either a special regulator key or the original key is inserted and turned in a different direction. This alerts the owner to the fact that the lock has been tampered with.
