    Thanks Safeman. The Elwell connection helped. It turns out that J.F. Elwell and possibly J.Groves took out a patent together. In about 1872 patent #2408 for the sicker safe. Unfortunately I cannot find out what the patent was for.

    Warren,
    I don't think that these photographs have ever been published before and therefore may be of use to you.

    Thanks Safeman. I have the smaller class D plaque shown on the bottom of this safe and have never been able to accredit it to anyone. Iíve always thought it was off one of the European safe makers so that picture is very useful.
