Food safe


A Salford food safe with original blue and white enamel paint finish. It has perforated sides and door, a Bakelite handle and a removable internal shelf. Its original purpose was for the storage of meat, cooked cold-cuts, milk, butter and leftovers – before the days of the refrigerator.  It would make an ideal kitchen or bathroom cupboard.

Please note there are some scratch marks to the paintwork on one side - see image.
