Large 18 Inch 1930s Letterbox Plate
A very large 1930s solid brass (mid tone) letterbox from outside of a commercial building. Quite unusual to get them in this size with a large flap. Its got 4 sockets for the bolts that will require recessing into the surface. We've replaced the bolts with modern and added a nylon lock nut to get the bolts nice and tight, screw in the long bolt and tighten the locking nut up against the socket. New bar and spring, cleaned and polished and It'll tarnish pretty quickly.
Any questions, please ask.
It is slightly bent, its been straightened as much as possible so the flap doesn't sit as tight as a smaller modern one would. Its had a lot of use and had never been cleaned, it does have surface marks, scratches and some weathering. You can see some of the weathering on the close up showing the flap.
