Inside the tin there is a brass plaque which says '100 New Bond St. Bramah & Co lock & Despatch box manufacturers to his majesty the king'. The lock itself is also marked 'J.T Needs 100 New Bond St Late J.Bramah 100 Picadilly'. These marks date it to between 1904 and 1918. The lock works fine, and there are 2 keys with it. It would make a great decorators piece
