VR letter Box, English Mailbox, Antique, Collectables
- Source: eBay
Let's Go to England...A Big Red English Mailbox or V.R. Letterbox about 10"X15"x6". It is made out of heavy duty tin or steel. It is fairly heavy duty. It was actually used as a mailbox in a hotel. I can't say if it is a reproduction or an original. I am fairly sure that it qualifies as an antique ... because we have had it for 50 years or more. We have the keys and the lock seems to work. My mother brought this back from England years ago. I believe the originals were made out of cast iron, but I don't know if this type may have been used indoors. If someone knows or can provide me with more information ... I'll include it in the description... If I can.
