Art Nouveau Brass Letterbox
An early 1900s solid brass letterbox with clapper in an Art Nouveau style. Probably dating anywhere from 1900 to 1930, its a slightly larger example that the average ones from this period. Cleaned & polished with new spring and bolts. The replacement bolts have a locking nut at the socket end as they don't recess that far into the plate. It'll tarnish pretty quickly outside, easy enough to keep shiny with a Brass type product.
Good original condition, the flap fits pretty well, some of the lettering is worn through use and a few marks here and there.
