Curious about safes?
Throughout the history, people invested ingenuity to create ways to save their precious belongings, dangerous objects and important documents. The oldest example of a lockable box was found in the tomb of Pharaoh Rameses II, dating back to 13th Century BC. It had movable pins that fell into the holes and locked the device. However, the prototype of a burglar-resistant safe as we know it today was made by two English engineers back in 1835!
Did you know that the most expensive and extravagant personal safe model was designed by Karl Lagerfeld? Its name Narcissus is probably after the self-admiring character of Greek mythology.
