Featuring a horse and rider galloping across the countryside, this salvaged cast iron letterbox or pot box on a plinth is itself a dashing piece of street furniture that would adorn any property. The box itself is in the shape of a house with tile effect roof and a stately crown finial. The octagonal body bears a postal horn, scroll work and the horse and riders to the faces. There is a single letter plate or slot to the front though the design of this is mimicked on the reverse. The fully featured riser or post leads to a stepped base with scalloped corners and a Greek rams horn pattern. There are four fixing holes in the base to help secure this fine piece.
We currently have one of these cast post boxes.
1 x is complete but the door is detached and will require a new hinge pin
