About

A mid-19th century country house desk top letter box, the oak body centred by a slope-front brass-mounted posting box titled "Letters" and with a further brass-framed and beveled glass panel for indicating collection times. The collection time panel accessed from the inside of the lid via a hinged door. The second large beveled glass panel shows the letters in the box. The post box locks with a Bramah lock, no key included. The letterbox is in a very good condition, brass hinges work smoothly, beveled glass has no chips or fleabites, the black paint of the word letter is fading, the whole box has a great patina.
