This is an elegant little turn-of-the-century mail slot to go with most architectural styles. The exterior piece is made of cast bronze and the trim piece for inside the door is flat wrought bronze. The interior piece has some of the original gilding which gives it a lovely historic look. The outside piece has aged to an almost black patina that is only acquired by time. Polish if you like there are no heavy scratches to mar the metal.

Both pieces are nice and straight and the spring to keep the flap closed is still strong. Only one or two little blemishes to the patina on the outside piece. They will age to match in time. If you elect to polish they would of course disappear. Mounting screws are included. The original screws for the outside plate allow a door thickness up to 1-1/2. If your door is thicker you will need to replace those screws.

Exterior plate: 2-1/2 x 8-1/2 overall
Interior plate: 2-3/16 x 8-1/8 overall
Opening on both: 1-1/4 x 5
