Good quality 19th century pair of golden oak table cabinets; the rectangular 'Belgian Black' marble tops, above a pair of arched panelled doors fitted with Bramah locks (stamped 'J Bramah, 124 Piccaddilly' with a crown). The mahogany interiors one fitted with eight pigeon holes the other cabinet with a central shelf. Raised on moulded plinth bases, the reverse of the cabinet echoing the arched panels and mouldings of the front making them free standing.
Excellent condition commensurate of age and use
Joseph Bramah's locks were renowned to be un-pickable and tamper proof. He created what he called the ‘Challenge Lock’, displaying it in his shop window from 1790 with the notice: The artist who can make an instrument that will pick or open this lock shall receive 200 guineas the moment it is produced. Amazingly, no one was able to answer this challenge for over 60 years, until 1851, at the Great Exhibition.

Bramah locks were only used on quality furniture, as they were so expensive.
