This cupboard was made in around 1920. It was part of the inventory at the psychiatric hospital in Wermsdorf, a building which until the end of the Seven Years’ War in 1763 was the magnificent Hubertusburg hunting lodge owned by Augustus the Strong. In the late nineteenth century, the lodge was converted into a clinic and nursing home.
In order to restore the cupboard, it has been sandblasted, brushed and treated with hard wax oil.
This solid filing cabinet was made in East Germany in the 1950s or 1960s. It shares its design with filing cabinets produced in the early twentieth century by companies such as Kardex and Blödner.
This is just an example of the filing cabinets currently in stock at Goldstein, which feature minor variations in terms of handle shapes and nameplates. They are available within about a fortnight on request.

This charming tool cabinet is just the right size for a bedside table – or alternatively makes a unique piece of furniture for anywhere in the home! It was built in around 1900 out of riveted iron parts. Its sandblasted, brushed and waxed interior provides space where precious items can be stored. Meanwhile the exterior has simply been treated with wax in order to preserve its beautiful patina.
This safe weighing in at some 250kg yet still transportable dates back to pre-war times. Featuring triple locking, it was made by the company Febag and used in a ball-bearing factory in the city of Chemnitz. We’ve sandblasted, brushed and waxed it. The position of the two shelves inside can be adjusted as required.
Since the safe was locked when it was discovered – and as safe-breaking isn’t one of our talents! – we commissioned a professional team of specialists to open it. The lock was dismantled, and the individual components were brushed clean and reassembled. The safe’s locking system may be old, but it’s utterly secure! Two keys have been made, including one from an antique blank.
This antique high-voltage switch built by Siemens has been converted into a striking cabinet suitable for wall mounting. It even features an ammeter to prove its original function! The door handle was originally intended to switch the current on and off. The cupboard door is kept closed with two magnets. Inside, we’ve added three glass shelves each 8mm thick.
The cabinet dates back to the 1920s and was installed in railway power station in Muldenstein.
However, since the cupboard weighs in at 125kg, extra care needs to be taken when attaching it to the wall!
