Large Letter Box, bronze or pink brass
A magnificent large cast bronze or pink brass letter plate with the word `letters` to the flap. It's not often that we get the chance to date door furniture. We can sometimes learn the date a design was registered but that doesn't mean that the item in question was made anywhere near that date. This fantastic letter plate however has the legend E Showell & Sons Ltd B Ham 1951 stamped into the flap (see images) making it almost exactly 65 years old at the time of writing. It's survived its 65 years remarkably well, there is some surface character which we have left as found, the springs have been replaced and we've given it a good polish. Supplied with new securing screws suitable for doors up to 6.5cms thick. the holes for the studs have been re-threaded to take standard pitch M5 thread making longer studs easy to acquire from most hardware outlets.
