For Sale By Owner

The dimensions are 24" by 24" by 34" on the outside and 11" by 11" by 12" on the inside. I have the combinaison to open it and it works perfectly. Other than some rust on the outside, which can be seen as improving the looks, it is perfect.

I am selling it for the estimated vale and I am told that restoration work will improve the value.

Weight should be in the 800 to 1200 lb range – probably around 1000 lbs.

Here is the basic history for this safe:

Edwards & Son, Montreal (or Edwards Safe Company)

Successor to C.D. Edward Safe Company, formerly Edwards & Kershaw.

Owner Charles Dickens Edwards.

Charles Dickens Edwards at an early age learned the safe and lock manufacturing business, and later became senior member of firm, Edwards & Kershaw, Safe and Lock Manufacturers, Boston, Mass., a branch of which was established in Montreal, Que., under the name of Union Safe and Lock Co. Mr. Edwards was manager of the Montreal branch from 1857 to 1861, when Mr. Kershaw, a son of the original .member of the firm, joined him, the name of the company being changed to Kershaw & Edwards, under which name the company operated until 1871, when Mr. Kershaw returned to Boston, and the name was again changed to C. D. Edwards which in 1885 became The Edwards Safe Co. Soon after he settled in Montreal, he became a naturalized Canadian citizen.
