However, after the Gold Rush, a period of increased robberies and violence took place and marked the beginning of the 19th century. Boca do Lobo went back to 1849 and designed an unbreakable safe that stands out for its impenetrable nature – the Millionaire Safe.
Through its dented top, this luxury safe tells us the history of various unsuccessful vault robbery attempts throughout the Gold Rush.
It’s empowering opening handle also draws inspiration from Portuguese history, and the era of maritime discoveries, resembling a vessel ship’s wheel.
The Millionaire features a solid polished brass frame, with gold coating. Its opening system works with a secret code combination, and the interior is lined in fabric, with a set of lockable drawers made from solid mahogony.
As safe and secure as its owner’s secrets, only to be unveiled by time itself.
