Vintage Book Safes
Vintage book safes are made from antique books published before 1969, and who knows how many homes they've had! These books are often well used, with pages that can be yellow with age, but never musty - just that wonderful "old book scent".
Back then, books were a generally of smaller size, and so our size categories reflect the difference. What might be considered a LARGE Vintage book would be a MEDIUM size in the Traditional section. Confused?  Sorry! Books come in all sizes and we try our best. Actual measurements inside and out are listed in the Product Details for every book safe listed here.
