Hi, Welcome to Feisty Broad Designs!

This is a fabulous BRASS vintage mailbox, letter box, post box,(possibly Antique, which means 100 years or older), I'm just not sure as of the date from the research I was able to do online.

This cool working mailbox is marked "Corbin Cabinet Lock Co., CORBIN, New Britain, Conn., Made in U.S.A.". This is stamped on the angled top of the mail\/letter box as photo shows. At top it also has working LETTERS marked flip open door.

The Corbin Cabinet Lock Co. was established in 1882 as a branch of P&F Corbin in New Britain, CT, U.S.A.

This is a working mailbox, letter box, with a working door that is stamped MAIL with a mail box opening that snaps opens and closed. There is a key hole, but no key. It snaps open and closed without problem. Overall, it is what I'd consider very good vintage\/antique condition, with only the key missing and just afew little dents here and there...just adds to the charm! Over all these years, visitors to my home have always complimented on this rare find!

The back of the box has five holes to attach to wall with screws should you desire, via opening mail door for easy access to screw holes. Or could sit easily as an interesting part of history on your table or shelf, etc.

Measurements:
10 1\/2" at tallest.
3" in depth.
3 1\/2" angled top with Corbin label marking.
6" in width.
4 1\/2" letter opening into LETTERS flip up door
4 3\/4" tall MAIL door opened
4" wide MAIL door opened

I've owned this charming mailbox for over 3 decades, have never used it outside, although clearly that was the purpose originally and still could be. I still LOVE it, but must downsize. About 15 years ago, I had someone my Mom knew who shines brass as a business and she put a special kind of protective glaze on it to help prevent tarnishing. Overall, this glaze has lasted very well over all these years...I'm not a fan of things I have to polish often!

This is indeed a unique, rare and absolutely charming, working mailbox or could be used as an interesting home accent...a real collector's find!
