Antique French Delachanal Paris Mailbox in Original Paint, circa 1918



Antique French Delachana Paris mailbox and in order to encourage small towns to install additional mail boxes, Delachanal created for the post office a large steel box utilizing the same door as the cast iron boxes. The new mail box had a pressed steel pyramid roof and simple straight sides and canted corners. There was a similar flap to the small steel boxes. These boxes are quite unusual as the drain holes in the bottom frequently blocked, allowing the bottoms to rust out.
