Royal Mail "Post Office" cast iron Front GPO Post Box

Sellers Comments. Queen Elizabeth 11 Post Box This is a genuine ER11 Royal Mail "Post Office" Cast Iron Fronted Post Box. It measures 24" High, 10" Wide, 14" depth aprox, and the letter aperture is 8" Wide. The Post Box itself weighs around 19 kilos, and was produced in the 1980s. It has been re-painted in the correct Post Office red and comes complete with the Internal letter basket. It is also fitted with the correct Chubb lock, and comes with 2 keys plus a metal key tab with key number. The front black Collection Time Plate is a laminated copy of a period original and has the metal collection Time Tablets to go with it. The Collection Time Tablet holder is still fitted to the inside of the door. The makers name of "Abbot Engineering" is cast into the bottom of the door. There are 4 holes pre-drilled on the bottom should you wish to bolt it to a stand, or you can build it into a brick pillar or wall. The metal bottom of this Post Box has been replaced as it had previously rusted through, which is a known problem with this style of box. The door opens freely and overall it is in good condition. Cash on collection only, pay pal is not accepted.

Sellers Comments - A walnut letter box, possibly made in the first half of the last century, to a Victorian design popular with many country hotels or grand country houses. This is a very well made, substantial item in the style of a Victorian street pillar box. The carved pagoda top has a central finial and decorative beaded edge. Below this is an engraved brass letter box opening, a hinged door with 'piano-hinge' opened by key (included), a brass engraved information plaque and a drawer below for wax and seals. Height - 58cm Diameter - 24cm Letter Box Width - 7.3cm Drawer Width & Depth - 11cm, 14.5cm NB: The base of the post box is not dramatically lighter than the rest of the box - glare from the photo lights has given this impression.

Collectors Corner - K2 Reclaimed London Telephone Box - Fully Refurbished

Collectors Corner - K2 Reclaimed London Telephone Box - Fully Refurbished

Sellers Comments -A STUNNING ORIGINAL K2 TELEPHONE KIOSK. Created in 1926 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott for a GPO completion and chosen by the Royal Fine Arts Commission as the outstanding design, the K2 is the original red telephone kiosk.

 It has been an enduring presence at the heart of London, bearing witness through a Blitz, the changes of the Sixties and Royal and State occasions. Its imposing elegance is influenced by the tomb of architect Sir John Soane. Larger and more ornate than later kiosks, the pierced crown and circular vented ceiling show how the practical can also be stylish. Too expensive for national use, the Post Office produced them exclusively for the London area.. All examples still on the street are preserved by order of English Heritage. A fully refurbished k2 telephone box. viewing/collections from se25 (near croydon) delivery can be arranged. Dimensions 3ft.6in x 3ft.6in x 9ft 4in. Weight. 1250kgs
