Made in the late 1800’s this mail slot reminds me of a Victorian garden! The top and sides brings to mind ornate Fleur de Lis iron fencing and along the bottom edge swirling leaves. The inside plate echos the Fleur de Lis ornamentation. Be sure to enlarge the photo to see the fabulous metal art work.

Made of thick cast iron the outside piece has sterling silver plating – used on high end Victorian hardware at times. I haven’t polished it – that is up to you. The inside plate does not have any plating and has been wire brushed but you may want to paint it silver to match the outside. The spring to close the flap is still present and strong. Mounting screws are not included. You can purchase them at your local hardware store to match the finish you choose. These pieces have no bends, breaks, chips, cracks or repairs.
