    In my opinion, the safes which have been illustrated have been invidually decorated by hand by 'coachpainters' long before spray painting, transfers or decals, at a time when all vehicles, lorries etc were hand painted, lettered, and generally embellished.

    If there is no evidences or photos of fine paintwork departement in safes factory probably you are in the light
    so unfortunately for me this type of art is a little bit loss and safes are a challenge to carry to the right man

    There used to be some hand painted Ratners around that period. A brownish red, with black was common. It was the fashion of the time. Chatwood used to do green with gold striping.

    That Chubb shown is after 1901 and I suspect had elements of both hand painting and transfer.

    Not sure of what you have in mind but can always go to printer shop they may help you out or can restore your photo but don't know if this going to work.

    I doubt if you will find a transfer in better condition than the one you have got.
