On offer is this lovely chic mail/ letter box. It's in good condition overall, very solid still in construction. A few screws have been replaced over time and there are signs of old rust and pitting to the metal parts but as shown in the photos all adding to the aged charm and character of the piece.
It has a traditional rectangular form which has retained all of it's original paint finishes creating this extremely decorated mottled look with reds and yellows. I just love the contrast and shows it's had a hard life over the years!
The original metal letter flap is present to the front side as is the hinged latch for the front door - perfect for parcels and collecting mail.
The back is plain and flat and retains later added hinges for fixing to a wall - although later additions they fit in well with the overall look.
Unmarked for a maker and it has had some changes over the years but circa mid 20th century when it would've been produced.
The outer measurements are (not including overhanging top):
Length - 23cm (9 inches)
Width - 18cm (7 inches)
Height - 46cm (18 inches) - highest point including sloped fixed top.
The letter flap has an opening measurement of 14cm (5 and 1/2 inches) in length.
A truly lovely chic mail box ready to be collected and enjoyed once again!
